I received a VIGOTEC VG-L7X for Christmas and have had fun with it, but several issues and concerns have come up.
- I see demos online of lasers easily cutting and engraving clear acrylic sheets but I have been unsuccessful in making it do so. I’ve tried putting masking tape on each side of the acrylic sheet but the tape is cut on both sides with the acrylic sheet almost untouched. I do see in the advertisement that it states it can not cut transparent materials - is that due to the power or frequency of the laser?
- This machine would be SO much better if it had limit switches so I could consistently return to the exact same starting point. Have any of you successfully added end stops ?
- I’ve seen many concerns about the software that ships with this machine. I found that the laserGrBL (specific version for this machine) works very well and is easy to use.
