Question #: 12204

Question: co you sell plans so I can cut my own laser setup??

Current Solution

The plans or DXF files are not offered. We sell the machines as kits or fully assembled. The kits are very well priced and will most likely cost less if materials and labor than working from plans (this comes from feedback from many customers that built similar machines from plans).

  • can you supply a new board and a better software program for a CO2 laser cutter and engraver

    If you need a new laser controller for CO2, we can definitely supply one.

    This is the laser controller that we sell: https://www.buildyourcnc.com/item/Laser-Component-Laser-Control-System

    The laser controller works with a program called LaserCAD and is compatible with most typical file types.

    The laser controller will work with any laser tube and laser tube power supply that requires 5V digital signals and PWM.

  • my laser power supply has quit again how can I contact you?

    I'm very sorry to hear that your laser power is not working. Did you check to see if the problem is actually with the laser tube? The laser tube has a finite number of hours of running time and this may be exhausted. We can send another power supply right away once we confirm that the problem is the power supply.

    At the bottom of the page, you will see a link "Contact Us". The email link for customer service is there. http://www.buildyourcnc.com/contactus.aspx. Contact us and we will assist you with the power supply and/or send you a new one to replace yours.

  • Do you sell only the laser components in a kit form?

    We can sell the laser parts in a kit form. What specific parts are you looking for specifically.

    A typical parts list would be as follows:
    - 1 Laser Tube (40w or 80w)
    - 1 Laser Power Supply (40w or 80w)
    - 2 Laser Mirror Mounts
    - 3 Laser Mirrors
    - 1 Laser Mirror Mount/Lens Holder/Nozzle
    - 1 Lens (Focal Lengths of 1.5", 2", 2.5" or 3" depending on your application)
    - Laser Protective Goggles

    Other parts that would be optional:
    - Laser Controller with Control Panel
    - Water Chiller if using the 80w (can also be used for 40w)
    - Screw Terminal with Post (for laser tube connection convenience)
    - 5K Potentiometer if the laser controller is not included

    Let me know if this list matches what you would expect and I will create some kits.

  • Can I attach a 400w CO2 laser tube to you units (for cutting Stainless Steel at 1/8") ?

    A 400w laser tube will not be a simple swap of our laser tube in our blackTooth or our spindle/laser hybrid. The overall size factor of a 80w - 400w is greatly larger than our 40w laser tube and will be the biggest issue. You will have to completely modify our units to retrofit a larger tube, which might be more costly than expected as well as more time consuming.

  • Can other types of laser tubes work with the controller you are selling, for example, the 80W Reci tube?

    Yes, other CO2 laser tubes will work fine with our laser controller (including the Reci tube). Our laser controller is a digital based controller that controls the laser tube power supply, the motor drivers and other peripherals by outputting digital signals to these devices.

  • Can you shortcut the usb controller that comes with the blacktooth laser to hardware reset it?

    The USB controller does not have a reset button installed on it.

    You have some alternate options however:
    - You can remove the USB connector and re-insert it.
    - Set the USB to use external 5v by removing the jumper near the USB connector, use a 5v wall adapter and install a switch along the 5v DC power line to turn it off then on. You can use a momentary push button switch to do this.

  • can you offer the blackToe 2'x4', Combo #1 (Plans with DVD) on amazon so I can use my amazon credit to purchase?
  • I am interested in buying Laser Cutter/Engraver with Integrated Computer, so can you please let me know if your offer still stands?

    The (blackTooth) laser cutter and engraver comes with the unit shown on the product page seen here: https://buildyourcnc.com/blackToothLaserCutterAndEngraver.aspx

    The unit is intended to be set on a table top.

    The stand that you may have noticed was only a demonstration on how to use SketchUP in a CNC process scenario. The stand has never been offered with the blackTooth laser.

  • Can you supply a "KIT" to convert my 4060Z CNC to a Laser Cutter? What is the difference capabilities between the 40Watt and 80Watt?

    We can supply all of the laser components, but you will need to determine how to mount the components.

    Additional Information:
    Alternatively, you can purchase our greenBull machine that has the laser/spindle combo head. You can see the laser/spindle head here: https://www.buildyourcnc.com/item/cnc-machine-laser-spindle-combo-head

  • how can I exhaust the blacktooth co2 laser cutter

    Exhausting the blackTooth laser cutter is a very important consideration and should be taken seriously, especially if you are cutting materials that give off toxic fumes when the material is burned. You will want a 4 inch hose to connect from the blackTooth to a blower, and another 4 inch hose to connect from the blower to the outside. The blower should be sufficient to provide completely negative pressure within the laser enclosure so there will be no escape of gasses.

    The connections at the machine, at the blower and at the location the hose exhausts outside should be thoroughly checked for leaks. Use a gasket, or silicone. Once complete, try cutting a non-toxic material that will give off an odor (wood, or non-toxic plastic) and try the system and determine if the smell is present.

  • HOW CAN YOU ENHANCE THE BLACKTOOTH LASER CUTTER?

    Temperature probe monitor. Very valuable. This keeps you up to date on your coolant temperature levels.

    Voltage meter. This will tell you the exact level of voltage/power you are running telling the laser to run at instead of an arbitrary mark on a drawn wheel around your POT.

    Ammeter sensitive to 1mA. This will be sure your not over driving your tube and reducing it's life significantly.

    Hour meter. This will tell you exactly how long your system has been 'on' giving you a more accurate bead on the length of your tubes life.

    Exhaust fan upgrade. The current fan included is 100CFM. You can buy 120mm fans that push 250CFM and I have included a guide on how to go about doing this here. http://buildyourtools.com/phpBB3/viewto ... 8cdd1802bf

    To push the exhaust fan even further, if you have the room/power, I would highly recommend investing in a 600+ CFM "Dust Collector" system. 250CFM is still not suffice to draw all the smoke that can come off of 3mm or 1/8 MDF cutting job.

    A cutting surface. I bought myself a aluminum 'egg crate' mesh from my local HVAC company. They are used a cover for fluorescent lights and work great for low impact cutting surface. They come in 4'x8' sheets and are easily cut to fit. The other side is if you can find a steel honeycomb cutting bed to fit. These can be quite costly or fairly affordable depending where you are looking. The benefit of a steel honeycomb is you can use high power magnets to hold material down.

  • I know you cant cut it but can you etch stainless steel with the laser?

    No you cannot sketch any kind of metal unless its coated from the molecular level or having it coated individually. However there are some types of coatings (Thermark and Cermark) that you can use to coat the steel so that you will be able to use our laser machine to sketch any metal.

  • i want to make a cutter laser machine with 4kwatt power so i want to buy all this laser components can you list the parts and cost thanks

    We can lower the price for just the hardware and also for the structure. However we do not have any files, dimensions, for public access.

    Additional Information:
    Would there be any/enough measurement or info on the instructions to extrapolate the dimensions? What would the new pricing be?

  • How fast can I cut 1/4" wood with the 40 watt CO2 laser?

    CO2 laser will not cut wood material fast at all. This is just the nature of the laser energy. The wood is a very low absorbent of the laser energy and you will need to run probably around 10 ipm to cut through the wood. CNC is much more efficient for cutting and laser as more efficient at marking or slowly cutting if you need the small kerf. You will also need a relatively high output air source to cut efficiently. The air will blow away the char (carbon) on the wood. The black char will absorb most of the laser energy not allowing the wood to be cut well. We use a compressor for the air source, but you can use a commercial hydroponic air pump instead.
