    Hi there

    I have a general question is it possible for a Leaser CNC to Cut the Glass like the ones that I have attached in my attachment?

    if it was Wood I know I could use Profile Cut with right tip. But with Leaser I just do not know.

    Also What are the proper applications in order to Work on Glass? I know for wood ArtCam is one of the best.

    Regards

    Not without spending a LOT of money, on a very high powered laser.

    The glass in the pictures are ground and polished, which would still be required to get edged like that.

    Hi garry

    thanks for the reply, by the way are you the same Garry from CNCZone?

    On issue of Leaser, How about some thing in the range of about 120 W? Would it be enough?

    also on the process itself, I do not think that profile cutting would do the Job, and It must be some sort of 3D relife

    Operation, Could you explain on it, what software do you recommend for it?

    regards

    As Garry stated, ground and polished to get stepped edges on glass, not laser.
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D
