An small Arduino laser cutter – The MicroSlice


FLT6YJ4HMMFC254.LARGE_
The design of this arduino laser cutter is quite unique. As the cutting table would be fixed, the cutting head must move along the Y Axis instead, but it must also accommodate the X Axis. So the whole cutting head, and the X Axis, must move along the Y Axis. Like a gantry crane moves up and down the dockside.
There are two stepper motors with threaded shafts. The longer the shaft the larger the potential work-area for the cutting head. there will also need a pair or runners for the Y Axis gantry to move along.
So I need two stepper motors with threaded shafts. The longer the shaft the larger the potential work-area for the cutting head. I’d also need a pair or runners for the Y Axis gantry to move along.
