Are you mounting that to the wall or just using the wall for storage when off?
It is mounted to the well so it lays flat when not in use. Then at about 60 deg when pulled out.
Limited space is the mother of innovation LOL
Nice looking build, but I have to ask, why did you choose to make it with cbeam? 20X40 vslot would have been strong enough to handle the weight of a laser diode.
I wanted the option to use a trim router as well as the laser. In the future I might be looking at a whole, from the ground up, redesign with vslot and nema 17's for just the laser.
OK, makes sense
I build public roads for a living so I have a tendency to over design sometimes LOL
Do you think the diode laser is powerfull enought to cut Carbon or fiberglass tissue. I search a lot about this kind of test but found no answers. It seems for the industry CO2 laser with more powerfull rate is required.
Thanks for your advice.
I would have to agree that a CO2 laser would be better suited for that application. unfortunately I found more functionality with the router attached to this unit and have been using it more has a CNC router then a laser cutter/engraver. I will be designing a CO2 laser in the future because of this.
