New K40 owner. I’ve been playing around with it for about 5 days now. I’m pretty impressed with it’s ability to engrave and vectorize wood. I also had some success engraving sandstone river rock. Have not had much luck with glass.
Anyway, have the version with the water temp meter and my only upgrade at this point I is a 3d printed chain guide and air assist. I’m using inkscape and K40 whisperer.
My biggest issue at this point is determining the correct starting location for prints. It’s not an issue if I’m printing something I’m cutting, but I’ve cut some log discs out of maple and it’s challenging figuring out where to home the laser to get perfect placement. I’ve seen mods that have diode laser crosshairs but that only give me a start point. Is there any option to have the laser draw an outline or bounding box prior to starting the cut?
