LazerBlade: The affordable laser cutter / engraverDevice
The LazerBlade is an entry-level laser cutter & engraver kit, developed to fill the gap in today's world of affordable desktop rapid-prototyping machines.Our goal was to create a portable device that went beyond a novelty and proved itself a useful tool for both the novice creator as well as the serious artisan, and everyone in between. Laser cutting is a technology that uses a powerful laser to cut or engrave flat sheet materials such as paper, wood, plastic, fabric etc. It works by directing the output of a high-power laser at the material to be cut / engraved. The material then either melts, burns or vaporizes away, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.
