Who out there (in here?) has looked at using laser devices for digitizing items and creating cutting routines?
Most are very pricey. Many production machines charge 8 to 10 thousand dollars for the option. Acculux makes a "Laser Ranger" in the $1200 range.
What am I missing? Mach 1 and Mach 2 both support digitizer inputs and even have a wizard to program the scan. I think CNC Pro does too. It looks to good to be true, is it? If a production machine option is 10 thousand dollars and the home grown is 1200 dollars, what gives? Is this the onetime good deal?
I want to implement this capability.... anybody out here (in here?) got any experience with this little jewel.
Like I said "if it looks too good to be true" just what is it???
