That was fun to put together. I used an acrylic adhesive called "Plastruct Plastic Weld" rather than a hot glue gun.

Looks cool!

I guess you could print it in PLA too and get the same look.

Question, where do all you people get these fancy laser cutters? The only ones I see available are like $20 grand. Is there a kit some where like the Makerbot for laser cutters or are you using one at work or school or something? Or are you guys rich? I have seen kits for CNC's but never for a laser cutter. I would really like to get one.

ebay.com :))))

check out full spectrum engineering, i have one of there lasers, and am quite happy with it cost, $2850 USD delivered to austraila

Our local Makerspace has a full spectrum laser..

Hmm, disappointing. Guess I am going to have to win the lottery or something. I don't really want a cheap model from china that is going to break and be very hard or expensive to fix. Leasing could work, I guess. I could really use one.

my friend has $1200 60W laser cutter from china, works like a charm for a year already. Already paid itself off many times. Expensive is not always better, most of the time they just resell and reassemble same chinese parts.

I cut this one out a while back when I worked for a Techshop.

You can lease them, however- and it's fairly inexpensive at about 150/month, depending. There's also the import route as mentioned.

You can pick one up a new one for under $5k from China. Try Ebay.

I think the majority of people may have access to one at work, or in some sort of workshop.

Unfortunatly scale, price and safety work against a homebrew Laser. Tubes are $4-500, high voltage supplies for those are another $3-400, Mirrors are another $200 odd. and all this is before any mechanical or electrical gear.

There are cheaper machines. If you look on ebay there are machines from china for a couple of K rather than teh 20-30K for pro machines. they perform reasonably well for a hobby setting.
I had a chinese one and it was good for seeing what can be done with a laser system. then it broke completely w
hen the controllerboard went, and i chose to upgrade to an Epilog instead of shelling out on parts for it.
