No special software or hardware required – not even a power supply! All you need is to mount the laser, create a special extrusion profile on your standard software and get to work.
Laser cutting requires a significant initial investment, but opens up a lot of making possibilities — laser-cut parts are tougher than 3D printer parts. With L-CHEAPO, the initial dollar investment goes from thousands to hundreds, and the module requires very little space.
We hope this product will allow high school shop classes, small universities and local hackerspaces to be able to work with a wider variety of materials and techniques without breaking the bank.
