3D printing isn’t the only digital fabrication technology out there, of course. There’s CNC machining, and then there’s laser cutting and engraving. Each has its own unique benefits, but it’s expensive to invest in all of that equipment. There are easier and less expensive ways, however, like turning your 3D printer into a laser cutter/laser engraver.
Endurance Lasers sells not only standalone laser cutters and laser engravers but attachments that allow you to turn your 3D printer or CNC machine into a laser cutter as well. According to Endurance, its lasers are among the most powerful and advanced laser cutters out there, capable of cutting and/or engraving a wide variety of materials including ABS and PLA plastic, plywood, wood, acrylic, cardboard, hardboard, felt, leather, stone, glass, aluminum, ceramics and more. They cut fast and cut deep, powerful enough to cut 4mm of wood in one pass or 8mm of acrylic in three passes. They can also engrave on copper and anodized aluminum.
They’re also extremely easy to install on your 3D printer or CNC machine, and can work continuously for 48 hours. Now, 3DPrint.com and Endurance Lasers are giving you the chance to try one for free. In our latest giveaway, we’re offering two winners a laser engraver/cutter attachment for any FDM 3D printer. It’s easy and free to enter, and you can enter multiple times.
