Question #: 783

Question: Do you have an 80w laser cutter?

Current Solution

We have one in the works. It is a 4'x8' machine that will house the 80w laser tube on the gantry. The machine is bout 2 months out as of 1/7/2014.

  • Does you laser cutter accept dxf file type?

    LaserCAD and the Anywells Laser Controller used in our BlackTooth and Vertical Laser XL laser cutters and engravers can accept these file types:

    .pdf (Adobe Acrobat)
    .dxf (AutoCAD and Drawing Exchange)

  • Does the blacktooth laser cutter have a 'trace' ability or 'air cut' where you can visually see the proposed cuts to be made..i.e. visible laser?

    The blackTooth does not come with a beam combiner that allows a visible laser to be combined with the CO2 laser.

  • 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 have built a 100% self designed 3d printer, I now want to build a laser cutter Cnc, will your products cut steel?

    CO2 lasers at the wattage we offer will not cut steel. However, if you are considering adding a spindle to the laser, then you can use that to cut the steel (similar to our spindle/laser combo head.

  • Does the blackTooth laser cutter can acrylic plastic?

    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.

  • Do you have a laser kit that can be fitted onto another brand CNC router?

    We don't have a laser kit to retrofit another CNC router other than ours, but we can create one. Some things that may help:

    - You are located close to use so we can work closely with you to implement to retrofit,
    - or you can provide very detailed drawings or measurements so we can use them to create the necessary parts for the kit.

    Other things that you need to understand:

    - A laser has a number of parts that will bulk up the head of the CNC router causing a bit more inertia which may require lowering the acceleration for smooth ramping up and down of the velocity

    - The bulk of the parts required for the laser may restrict the travel of the x and/or y axes.

    - The nozzle of the laser will be offset from the end mill of the spindle.

    Can you tell me the brand of the CNC router that you would like to stick a laser on? (you can answer by submitting additional information.

  • 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

  • im considering purchase of black tooth laser cutter, have vectric pro software what interface do i choose

    The Vectric software is very good software for CNC related machine operation applications; however, I am not familiar with a "current" line of software that would be best for laser toolpath application. It is best to use the laser controller for this machine as it will provide the best movement for laser cutting and engraving (especially for rapid raster (bitmap) style motion and lasing (engraving an image or design from top to bottom).

    This is the laser control system you should purchase with the blackTooth Laser Cutter and Engraver:

  • 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.

  • Regarding Blacktooth laser cutter, can 5 is cut .050 clear plastic and can I have sample pictures? Dpongos@gmail.com

    Yes, the blackTooth laser can cut .05 inch plastic. Generally, it can cut non-metallic materials up to about 0.25 inches. Video of an early test of the blackTooth is available on our website at https://buildyourcnc.com/blackToothLaserCutterAndEngraver.aspx#prettyPhoto/104/. There are also several posts of the blackTooth in action at buildyourtools.com.
