Cavinet
« on: April 01, 2017, 02:32:30 PM »
Hi,

Here, a small imitation cut on paper well from home!

Cut-out black paper pasted on white sheet.

Made by laser of course.

East for those who want to know, it is a Swiss specialty called "Cavinet".
Attached a small video on a background of "american Yoddel"

I uploaded, did a little background removal, and burned test etches in cardstock. Came out quite nice. Will try wood or slate. Thanks for posting.

Yeah, the images looks really nice. What settings did you use for cutting the paper?

If you want to cut paper, especially white copier paper get a CO2. It cuts with no charring of the edge, just like it was cut with scissors or a sharp blade, pretty amazing to watch... well you can't actually see anything but the cut just appears like magic which seems to keep me entertained  ??? .

Hi!

I think my setting was...
Power 100% (1600 mW laser)
Speed 300 and 3 passes.

You have to go fast enough and spend several times so that the cardboard does not burn

It is necessary to test

All depends on the thickness of the cardboard!

The problem with the diode lasers we use is the wavelength is very sensitive to a gloss surface as well as different colors.

That should cut nicely, probably in a single pass at 100-120 for feed rate (100% power, for a 2.5W).
