Hey, I just launched my first Kickstarter campaign. For the past 6 months I have been working on upgrade packages for low power diode laser engravers. I thought I would share it with you.

At first glance I'm not too sure what you were selling. But now I get it. Can your system "upgrade" any 3d printer into a laser cutter?

"Sharks not included." Cheesy

Nice job! You make me want to go buy a cheap laser just so I can buy one of your upgrade packages Smiley

No, sorry, it is an upgrade for a specific type of popular low cost kit from eBay, Banggood, AliExpress, etc. It is targeted at people who bought one of those and want it to work better - or work at all.

can you recommend what laser I should look at when I also go out and buy one of these devices to then get the upgrade package? Smiley

I don't know about @Blue Hair Bob . But I can recommend this 5.5W laser, It comes with the module for PWM control.

that one is *so* last year. I mean, really, this is like trying to sell off last years Ford Festiva as a "new car". Yeah, may not have many k's (or miles) on the clock, but it's had hundreds of bums on the seats (ok not sure what the laser analogy will be - but.... 2015!)

@EvoMotors - So what replaced it this year? I've always seen them for engraving, however I'm sure they will make a good laser plotter for pbc making. Can that 5.5W cut acrylic (1/8 inch thick)?
