Sorry for the late reply ;-)

Check out the EleksLaser A3-PRO ( I have one and use it regularly for cutting as tough as balsa wood. I can also engrave hardwoods quickly. Here's a 5.5W diode directly compatible with it ( That diode though is pretty expensive, and I ended up modding this diode's ( I have not tested this for acrylic engraving, but it works very well in my case. Since it is a diode laser, it doesn't require any cooling or CO2 tube calibration. I use a box fan to ventilate out a window. Mine came with safety goggles, too. I run my laser using LaserGRBL (, not the manufacturer EleksMaker program.

Hope this helps!
