3d laser cutter

I think this really can be named a 3d laser cutter :open_mouth: … but I still prefer my Glowforge :wink:

Or was that just a conspiracy theory?

Lasers mounted to jets don’t burn hot enough!

sure can, just not 40wat co2, but lasers have been used in industry for decades, they are hugely more powerful then we the GF is

1000 w CO2 laser can cut .25" steel plate
4000W fiber laser can cut 1" steel plate.
We use them at work

This guy gets it…
