This would be a cool laserweb feature https://youtu.be/arjRtCjI9AQ
Man, I’d kill for a Z Axis bed like that one.
That’s a really interesting concept to use gravity to your advantage. Quite surprised by the little rotation tool at 2:21-3:11. Most of this could be done manually by using a similar principle to what they’ve done with the “users drag shapes from the LaserOrigami library” (0:54). You could create your own set of predefined shapes & have them set to a certain colour fill/stroke so that you can filter them in LaserWeb for low power & multipass (for the bend/fold points).
@Yuusuf_Sallahuddin_Y I think I’m going to try it tonight. I intent to draw a single line and then run that job multiple times at low power. I’ll start with a few passes and measure temp. Maybe I can come up with a scale of sorts.
@Chuck_Comito One thing I did notice from the video though is that when they were doing the bend/fold lines they were moving the bed down (or lens up) to get it out of focus a bit. Might prevent it cutting through by dispersing the heat over a wider area for the fold.
I didn’t notice that. I’ll go watch it again. I could always start with my z way high and lower as it goes like a milling operation.
What a neat application of laser engraving/cutting.
Very interested! WOW!
