Re: EXACT point of zero XY

I saw a tutorial somewhere where pins were used for the 2 sided carve, so you could set the zero off off the
holes that were drilled

Re: 4th Axis?

Couldn't you just unplug the one axis and plug in the rotary axis in it's place and clamp the machine?

Re: Vinyl and Lasers

I am one of those new laser upgrade folks. I don't this this as a day job so by any means I'm very new. I downloaded this pdf and found it a good read. From what I have read PVC emits Chlorine gas. What source do you normally lookup materials and if they are safe for laser work? MSDS? Our materials...

Vinyl and Lasers

Hello ,
I thought I'd put this out there as Ive been seeing more laser upgrades on the cnc's.
Please do not cut vinyl as emits hazardous gases, I work on a laser at my day job.
