So day 2 of running around MFNY. Took some time to visit smaller booths and talk more deeply with folks.
I wasn’t the only one with an “ask me about Glowforge” sign:
Solarbotics was showing a large number of clever laser cut items, most of which were solar powered. They are extremely light.
Took some additional pics of the Meridian maps laser cut maps:
Interestingly they cut them as full size sheets each time for layout purposes. They told me that africa sized project costs around $400-600. The custom colorado race map was around $2000 for a client.
This was a spectacular jewelry designer from NYC who makes these pieces hand cut with a Xacto knife out of heat-shrink tubing. Really specacular in person. By cutting on the bias it curls like that when he heats it. They are pre-shrunk.
Can’t wait to get my Prusa MMU2 up and running, and for the Prusament filament to be in Amazon (no longer shipping from Prague).
Joseph told me on the MMU2 shipment they shipped 12-tons of Haribo!!!
I will say this epilog can cut super fast! This model seems to be a combo 75w CO2 and 30w Fiber laser?
