    Hello Rivo.

    Sadly no, as I purchased an 80 watt laser cutter after my original posts here enquiring about the Omio.
    However almost 2 months ago now I purchased a Chinese 6040 cnc router and built my own offline controller box to run it, so this compliments the laser nicely.

    The frame is the usual 6040 setup with Nema 23 steppers, for the controller I went with a DDCSV1.1 offline unit and teamed it with a 24 volt power supply and TB6600 stepper drivers.
    So far it's working really well and I'm pleased with it. The DDCSV1.1 means I don't need a seperate PC and then Mach3 or other to control the cnc.
    Just create the Gcode file on my PC, transfer to usb memory stick and plug it into the offline control box, load it up and hit start.

    From memory, Omio offer a similar control box, not sure if it's quite as good as the DDCSV1.1 which has gained a good following and some nice firmware changes. But it will be worth a look.

    Yes the standalone controller Omio uses is a rebranded ddcsv1.1 controller and works well. My only gripe is the inability to interact with pcb isolation routing with surface probing, but other than that I’m glad I purchased it.

    Thanks all for your answers,

    What other manufacturers do you think can provide this type of product ? With/without the box.It will be used mainly with hard wood such as rosewood or acacia ?

    Regards.

    Hi,

    I asked another manufacturer who provides different equipments, they told me that with the same machine I can cut and carve stone as well as wood, is that normal ?
    Another question, to cut a 5mm thick rosewwod, what is the required power of a CO2 laser ?

    Regards,

    Rivo

    I have a friend with a reported 60W chinese laser (so probably a 40/50W) and he struggles to cut 6mm pine. I have a chinese laser cutter that I replaced the tube with a true 80W and I can cut 12mm pine, but at slower feed rates. Hardwoods will require much lower feed rates at the higher powers but then introduces possibility of charring the work. I struggled to cut 10mm jarrah cleanly

    I have no doubt the CNC will eb able to cut and carve stone, however will need water cooling and I would think much slower feed rates, all depends on the tooling you will be using.

    Hi madeinoz67, I just received my X6-2200EPL (Orange Box). I've recently got it all set up, but I need to get some supplies before I run it.
    I downloaded Fusion 360, but I need to learn about this post processing (GCode).

    What is the latest on your system?

    Update, the cables are too short. I'm going to have to lengthen the cables. If they were only 6 inches longer, they'd be okay.
