Thread: Laser cutting Machines
The problem with mach 3 is producing the g code for the machine. It does work but it takes a lot of time compared to the dedicated laser controller. If you were setting up the machine to repeat the same job time and time again mach would be great. But lasers are great because they are fast and easy to use, mach takes the ease of use part away in some respects. I think you made a good decision buying this machine and I look forward to your review.
BTW ... I'll admit outright, I know nothing other than what I've read ... no keyboard worrier here ! lol
When the machine turns up .. I'll report wit I find ... no more , no less :)
haha :P !
... new toy alert ...
departed Southampton ! ... might be here tomorrow
and "IF" it turns up .... I'll be busy playing (fixing) for a while :)
I did manage to do a couple of trial cuts, but it seemed to burn on corners/direction changes and I decided that I much preferred my router, so I pushed (its a big beast) it back into the corner where it remains gathering dust. G.
That's a shame :(
what's the spec ?
you thought about selling it ?
ahhggg ... I cant work ... it's out for delivery and I'm excited like a little kid at christmas !!! lol
I haven't even cleared a space for it yet !
I know just how excited you must be. I have just bought a set of boat moulds to to build myself a GRP 18' sport fisher, and I am now going to arrange the transport - can't wait to get started. G.
My laser has 60W tube plus a spare, 900x600 table, and air pump, chiller unit etc.
I expect that it will end up on ebay!!! G.
It's here ! :D
label on the carton was 104Kg !!!
But wifey and I got it into the workshop with a bit of forward thinking.
1st impression is better than I thought it would be.
That's all for a bit .. I have some work to do that's going out today.....
