I did a lot of lasercutting at Fablab Utrecht, but they stopped a few years ago, and I moved to Hilversum.
I loved making this at this Fablab.
- Lasercutting : Boxes, A cryptex of my own design, Xmas ornaments, Shogi game, things in acrylic, Rubber stamps
- Cutting plotter ( Nae Bother Case logo’s )
- CNC Machines
- Vacuum form
Then i bought a mini engraver, which you can attach to your 3D printer.
But I really wanted a cutter, so there it is … the Sculptfun S9
This laser module has a new optical design, so it can cut wood as thick as 10+ mm.
It can engrave metal, cut non-transparant acrylic, leather and more.
I’m using Inkscape, with the lasercutter tool plugin from Jtech.
I’ve also tested with LaserGRBL, which can be run under linux using Wine.
I’m trail testing LightBurn. (Native Linux App)
I will post my findings and test on this post.
|Lines per mm||10|
Calibrate your machine! .. But NOT as found on YouTube using a 10x10mm or 1 inch by 1 inch. square.
As big as you can. This is far more precise!
My list of settings (Work in progress)
I have to check mm/s versus mm/minute!
|3mm Plywood (cut)||20 mm/s||90%||x||8?|
