Well the smilie tell it all.
New in the sector... I have been looking at CNC for quite a while and now I am ready to take the next step and get the first machine.
I will be using it for my hobby so $$$ might be an issue.
In a few words I will need to:
Cut and engrave plasticard or thin sheets of soft metal such as aluminum.
I will need a working surface with minimum a 7x7 inch area with a clearance of about 5".
Eventually I will also be interested in cutting soft cell foam sheets. In this case I will need the working surface to be at least 15" x 8" with a height of still 4 to 5".
I was looking on turn key equipment (I own a computer that I can use to command the machine).
After wondering around the various forums and after some research I was going for a CNC Mill but then realized that a small laser cutter engraver might work for me and will cut the foam sheets.
Now I am new so have no clue yet at what should I look for exactly can any one help?
I have found a small Laser cutter locally from China in new condition. Here a link to it: http://www.xstylemedia.com/eng/produ...dex.php?p=p171
So please any help or reference to acquire knowledge in this field will be more then welcome.
Thanks to all,
