What do you think?  Finally bit the bullet and ordered one of these.  And this is what I have been itching about for python!  Looking to make some dedicated toolsets for creating patterns for the CO2 machine.  Don't know how far I will be able to push it, but I am gonna go for it!

That's great! Bed size is reasonably large too. I used to be able to cut stuff when I worked in a sign shop. Gear heads that worked there would even make their own gaskets in a pinch. We only used .dxf for getting the path into the path cutting software. It was some time ago.

Interested to see what you do with this!

An exciting combination.  A 100W laser is pretty powerful and can do a lot more than just engraving.    Cannot wait to see your creations.  The photo looks like a Preenex ?.

 Enjoy!

I have had some experience with a 60W and found it to be just a bit lacking in what I wanted to cut.  But, I have been itching to get one ever since (about 10 years ago)  First plans are to build some tools to aid in my nano-manufacturing business.

 

kim, Don't know the brand, but from what I can tell, there is 1 actual chineese manufacturer of these with a number of different branding.  Some brands seem to outfit them better than others.  Better Tubes or controllers or ....?   In my case, I went with one that had the better controller so I could use it with the LightBurn software.  (it runs on a Mac as well as PC)

 

I would always consider jobbing it out.

Hope it works out for you.  I have heard good things about the Chinese lasers. And please keep posting your review of the laser.  Glad to hear that Lightburn runs on Mac, I am getting tired of running VM ware :-).
