This is the first of, hopefully, a few different videos as I progress towards a full CO2 laser build. I started with a Glowforge and I loved what it was capable of but really wanted what it lacked. I love my Glowforge and still use it, would definitely recommend it. If you intend to buy one use my code please! https://glowforge.us/f/IGHFNZUP
I don’t have any drawing of this or 3d models yet. I intend to make them at the end, but for now everything is from my head as I go. That said, there are some details that I know already.
The overall footprint of the machine is 1500mm by 1500mm (roughly 5 by 5 feet)
The height, so far is about 1 foot
The laser I intend to use is a 90 watt CO2 laser.
