I’m intending to use this laser to make items to sell. As such, I’d like to factor the cost into the items I make based on an hourly basis. Whats the expected laser-life? Similar to how the bulb-life for a projector is usually estimated.
For example, if it has a 200 hour life, and it costs $2000, then for every hour I use it, I can factor $10 into the cost of the final product.
