The first tests with the laser (hope to have time this days to post some pictures with the carving)

IMG_9704.JPG

IMG_9706.JPG

 

from a picture with my granddaughter i started a new test

the quality of this picture is not ok, but hope it is ok to you, to see what i can do with laser CNC

For carving, i still have to learn a little about GRBL and some additional software.

See you soon to all that watched this

I had a little time to try carving with my new CNC

you can see the results.

It take some time to see the software adjustments, so i can "link" some draw and carving software

detail look while is working

final result of carving

IMG_9719.JPG

oposite way of carving

The wood is not the best, because i wanted jut to make some tests

Hope it is useful for the one that want to work with CNC for making small parts for shipmodels

CNC and Laser cutter in one - that seems an awfully useful machine Christi - great pick-up mate.  I hope it lives up to its claims and you get good use out of it - it certainly looks promising.

 

Does it require any specialised software?

 

cheers

 

Pat

Hi Pat.

For the laser printing it came with a basic software, very, good. For carving,it came with the "sending commands software - GRBL) and you have to prepare what to carve. Also for carving, you have two software that came with the CNC. One to prepare "leter carving" and one more sophisticated , ArtCam, for better work. You also have on DVD a program for carving on PCB. It is ok for the start, and if you want to do more things, you have to use some other. I work on graphics on computer, and i think that for most of us it is ok with what it is on DVD

If you need more info, just write

all the best to all Cristi

Looks ok, but i learned how the wood has to be, before starting a project

 

I wish to all people from MSW a HAPPY NEW YEAR !

And a lot of good thoughts from me

Cristi

Hi Pat.

A Happy new year to you, and all from MSW.

The software it is not hard for me, and you find a lot of examples and lessons on youtube

All the best, Cristi
