I ran it for the first time this evening, below are my first trial runs, that's black marble and it cut 1/4" acrylic (decently I think). Sorry about the out of focus pics, hard for me to take decent pics of black marble tonight.
I'll be making an air assist attachment right away as well as adding a water flow sensor monitored by a PIC microcotroller to shut the laser down if flow drops below a preset level. And a few other things. My plan is to eventually gut this thing and move the parts to my CNC router table, but I'm already enjoying it as is right now. The router will be removed permanently and it will be a dedicated laser only table .
I have a few questions tho, what is the exact distance from the bottom of the lens body to the top of the work piece supposed to be to get the precise focus point on the top of the work piece ?
And, can you move the axis from within the MoshiDraw SW ? "No big deal and I doubt it, just curious"
I'm sure I'll have some more questions as I go.
