  • Diode Laser on your 3D Printer, Perfect Tool for Makers?

    2019-08-01 09:12:42

    3D printers are amazing for makers everywhere, as they enable easy, cheap, and fast progress on projects. They can’t do everything though, especially if you want a different material from plastic, you’re for the most part out of luck. That’s where CNCs, and laser cutters come into play. They allow you to work with many more materials, like wood, acrylic, metal, and more. Compared to entry level 3d printers, even small CNC routers and laser cutters are quite expensive though. So, what if you could use the existing motion system of your 3d printer and just add laser cutting and CNC functionality? With CNC, that is quite difficult due to the much higher forces that are applied to the tool head. Laser cutting however doesn’t have that issue, so it’s a prime candidate to be retrofitted onto a 3
