The Getting Started category has only curated topics to help you get started learning about a K40 or similar laser cutter/engraver. If you are new to the K40, please start here. The topics in this category should only be essential information. Please add comments asking for clarification or suggesting additional useful information, but discussion belongs in other Lasers categories. Some day, we hope that if you read, understand, and follow all the posts in this category, without reading comments, you will be ready to safely operate your own K40.
