Question: Is it possible to flood the K40 with CO2 to prevent fire? Or will the gas also prevent the Laser to cut? :wink:

Two problems, first you need airflow to remove the smoke and debris. Second, it would take a lot of inert gas to fill the cutting area which would be pulled out through the ventilation to remove the smoke and debris. A fire extinguisher and paying attention is the best prevention.
