A powerful 3500 mW (3.5 Watt) diode laser cutter/engraver accessory for 3D printers and CNC devices.
Turn your 3D printer or CNC device into a powerful engraving and cutting machine
A great appliance turning your 3D printer into a powerful engraving and cutting tool
The L-Cheapo Mark 3 diode laser cutter/engraver with 3500 mW (3.5 Watt) output is a perfect accessory that adds new abilities to your 3D printer or CNC mill/router, which you can use now in a way you have never done before. A 3.5 Watt purple laser diode (445 nm) that can run continuously without additional cooling gives the Endurance L-Cheapo cutter/engraver plenty of power to burn through acrylic, wood, plywood and leather up to 1/4″ (6,5 mm) thick (some experiments showed that it can cut even 1/3” (8,5 mm) of wood and plywood with multi passes.
The ability to work with leather opens up the possibility for translating all those complex intricate designs you have in mind to physical reality. The laser can also be used to ablate material, creating arbitrary 3D relief (something that expensive CO2 lasers cannot do!), though it should be mentioned the high temperature blackens most materials.
Our tool is equally useful for artists interested in adding variety to their choice of mediums and for those who just want to mark their next prototype with their logo or decorate that laptop they love with a cute little touch.
The Endurance L-Cheapo 3 laser engraver/cutter is the best upgrade for a 3D printer. Our solution is flexible and easily installed. It is compatible with most 3D printers and CNC mills/routers, and we will work with you to make sure that it works with yours.
So, you can cut and engrave almost on any surface except.
|Laser cut:||Laser engraving:|
Initial attachment and calibration of the L-Cheapo should not take more than 30-60 minutes, after which switching from printing to engraving/cutting is a tool-free one-minute task. There is no need for a separate power supply for the L-Cheapo either. The average 3D printer’s hot end uses significantly more power than this laser draws, so it can simply draw from the same supply.

Endurance L-Cheapo laser can be easily installed on any 3D printer or CNC router. You can also make you own DIY engraving machine or create your own MakeBlock XY plotter with powerful 3.5W (3500mW) diode laser to cut and engrave. We give an ultimate support to anyone who need additional description how to put and run a laser cutter. Endurance also offers WanHao, DIY and Makeblock XY engraving / cutting machines that are already assembled and tested
The Endurance L-cheapo (3.5 watt) diode lasers are equipped with a PWM controller, which allows you to change the output power during engraving. The PWM controller is a third wiring for connection to a 3D-printers or CNC machine.
Setup does not cause difficulties:
Turn your 3D printer or CNC machine into an engraver. Engrave with pleasure.
