Recently, 3DPrint.com held a giveaway offering a free 5.6W laser cutter/engraver attachment that can be installed on any FFF 3D printer or CNC mill. While that giveaway has officially ended with two lucky winners, the sponsor of the contest, Endurance Lasers, has a lot more to offer – including several opportunities for significant discounts. From now until February 26th, customers can get 40% off an 8W or 5.6W laser cutter/engraver plus free goggles and a free G2 short focal lens. That’s a $275 savings, and you can also get 20% off any Endurance DIY engraving machine, a $200 discount – just enter the code “40% off 3Dprint” when you place an order.
With the promotions available, if you’re considering trying laser cutting and laser engraving for the first time, now is a good time to make an investment in your own piece of machinery.
Not sure if laser cutting and engraving is for you? Endurance Lasers offers trial periods in which a customer can buy a laser and try it out; if they decide they don’t like it, they can simply send it back for a full refund minus shipping. In addition, if a customer is unsure about a laser’s abilities to cut a certain material, they can send a sample of the material to the company, which will try it out. Endurance Lasers prides itself on its customer service, and makes itself as accessible as possible, with the following methods of contact encouraged:
- Telephone +79162254302
- Email [email protected]
- Skype george.fomitchev
Customers can also ask for and receive support here.
Laser cutting and engraving is a form of digital manufacturing that has grown alongside 3D printing and CNC machining, and lends itself nicely as a complementary technology to the other two. Frequently the three technologies are found together in hybrid machines, and Endurance Laser’s laser attachments, which have universal mounts, are easy to install on nearly any FFF 3D printer or CNC mill. You can find detailed instructions on how to do so here. You can also learn how to work with gcode or use a gcode plugin. The company also does a lot of experiments that it documents on YouTube, so if you’re not sure exactly what you’d do with a laser cutter/engraver, you can get some good ideas on the Endurance channel.
Endurance’s lasers support PWM and can be used to create grayscale, which you can see examples of on Endurance’s Facebook page. They’re highly powerful – they can cut up to 8mm of wood, plywood and acrylic. The 8W laser, the most powerful so far, can cut 4mm of plywood in one pass, and Endurance is currently working on a 10W laser that is expected to be available by the end of March. Endurance’s lasers can also be used for engraving on leather, painted/anodized aluminum, steel and copper.
Endurance Lasers offers a lot of support to its customers, so even if you’re unsure about investing in laser cutting and engraving, you can be assured that you’ll have plenty of help if you do decide you want to try this form of fabrication. There are only a few more days left to take 40% off your order, so if you’re ready to buy a laser, do so now. In addition, if you’re looking for a good charity to give to, you can take a look at Endurance’s charity initiative, which is raising funds to help children in Russia suffering from serious illness.
