    Talking Laser delivered!!!

    I got my laser delivered last night!!! It is everything I expected and a bit more. we had to seperate it into 2 pieces to get it through the 42" door but after that is was pretty smooth. Ray was great and answered every question I had and is a blast to be around. we started at just after 6pm and finished around 3am. there were lots of breaks and B.S.ing or I am sure we would have been done sooner. pictures are from the cell, I'll get better ones soon. I have to finish organizing the wires and hoses tonight and get her moved to her final location. it was a long night but sooo worth it. It's time to start having fun!

    Looks real nice, and I'm sure your additional investment (over purchasing direct from China) has paid off already!

    There's nothing like having someone on hand with experience for those first few hours - you probably saved a week of stress.

    Zax.

    I totaly agree, I wouldn't even have the laser firing yet if I were trying to do this on my own. Ray makes it look easy, but I know I would have had problems just from not knowing the parts and how they work. I don't know how much i would have saved if I bought direct, but I am happy so far and am excited to learn what it can do.

    That counts for me too. In February I bought the HX6090 from HXLaser but because of a lack of space we had to put it into storage. When I finally found a garage to work in, the door was only about 0.7 meter wide and we had to drag the whole machine a lot of meters. This meant that we had to disassemble the WHOLE machine(all doors, Z-direction construction, electronics, etc) and assemble it later again. Luckily I'm instrumentmaker in my daily profession so it wasn't that hard but still a LOT of work.

    Made my first holes monday, was very cool to finally see the laser cutting some cardboard. I'm going back to the garage in 5 minutes to do some more cuts, the thought already makes me nervous :P

    Congrats on getting your laser fired up. I have a ton of projects already lines up for my laser and after I get the machine all organized I will be starting the trial and error part of the learning curve. how many watts is your 6090?

    It has a 60Watt tube. Yesterday it was only possible to cut through cardboard at the 100% setting. Something had to be wrong so I finally tested if the laser bundle that hits the focus lens was aligned well: it was way out. Now I can cut cardboard at speed 400 and 25% power. Very cool

    I tested some dxf from the download section and works nice. The supplied program 'lasercut 5.1' is not even that bad...

    Make sure your aligning is right(nice round spot) and take your time. You will love it when it works(at least I do).

    Luckily for me I had Ray there to set the whole laser up and show me how to do everything. The lasercut software does seem pretty easy to use, i just need more practice. I cut out some depth gauges last night and they look awsome. I love the machine so far, I am just afraid of doing something stupid and damaging the machine. once the sticker shock wears off I'll be going full tilt.

    Just avoid PVC and you can't go far wrong.

    Soon you'll be lasering EVERYTHING!

    Zax.

    Yeah I was made aware not to use PVC. I also heard not to use plexiglass or lexan. I have a bunch of scraps but I don't know what they are. is there a way to tell??

    Plexiglass(acrylic) cuts beautiful but lexan is a problem indeed. If the material is clear and you have a bit of experience with plastics, you will find that lexan doesn't scratch as easy as acrylic glass and is much harder. Not sure about cutting but I've read that when you lasercut it, the etches look bad.

    I'm testing a lot of materials myself and try to find the optimal speed and power but that takes some time. Also had my first burning cardboard yesterday because I set the laser to 80% output and low speed, oops
