The current prototype is based on parts that are cut with a laser cutter. When using a laser cutter one has a choice of different parameter for each cutting sequence. As I have not found a lot of information regarding the cutting parameters for the cutter and the material I use, I will summarise those parameters in this article. I would happily have feedback from viewers who have additional information on cutting parameters.

Machine : Full Spectrum Laser Software : Retina Engrave

Cutting Parameters :

MDF – Thickness : 4 mm – Speed: 18 – Power : 100 – Passes : 3

MDF – Thickness : 3 mm – Speed : 25 – Power : 50 – Passes : 3

Balsa wood – Thickness : 2 mm – Speed : 50 – Power : 55 – Passes : 1

Balsa wood – Thickness : 1 mm – Speed : 40 – Power : 55 – Passes : 1

To be continued after more experiments with new materials!
