    Hi All.

    I'm Ben and new to CNC. We're looking to buy a laser to cut 8x4ft sheets, I know...we like to think big! Got some info for a Bystronic machine that looks promising.

    Will appreciate any tips on what to look for/avoid and any advice on reliable makes and also what software is user friendly.

    Often missed but vital
    There are some evil compounds given off with sublimation

    Thanks Poshpaws. We're going to start a bit simpler and opt for a milling machine. Any tips?
