I’m learning Fusion 360 right now, and as an exercise, I decided to design a table for my GF, that could theoretically be cut on the basic GF. Meaning that no individual piece can be bigger than 12x20. It may not be practical, but it’s a fun exercise.
I’m trying to decide what height to make the table, which got me thinking about the ideal height for a laser cutter. Would we want the laser bed to be at a typical table height, or higher? I think most of the time, you are not sitting in front of the laser-cutter, but standing. So you would probably want the bed to be a littler higher than a standard table top. Perhaps have the bed at about kitchen counter height. Any thoughts on that?
I’d like to make the table have storage slots underneath for storing various 12x20 pieces of material, and perhaps a small “outfeed” area on the side of the glowforge to take out pieces that were just cut. Any other ideas for a table designed specifically for the GF?
