cheap laser cutters?
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hey, does anybody here own a laser cutter, or at least have some experience with the cheaper models? I've been planning to get a cutplotter, but ultimately I find laser cutters more interesting/useful because they are also able to cut thin wood and engrave patterns and so on.
So I was wondering... you can get really cheap models in the 50-400€ range, but I'd like to know if they are actually capable of cutting cardstock and thin wood, or if those cheap ones are really just for engraving. Is there a rough guideline how strong the laser needs to be for cutting rather than just engraving?
