I own a K40 chinese laser cutter highly customized and improved. This is a very cheap but also very customizable machine. I’m the author of the MarlinKimbra support for laser cutters, and I maintain a patched version of a plugin for inkscape to generate the needed gcode to feed the machine, and of a patched version of pronterface to manage the laser machine too.
This project group my work on this machine, work that benefit also other DIY laser machine and the maker community at large.
Sources of my work:
- MarlinKimbra for lasers
- Pronterface with MarlinKimbra for lasers support for coolers
- Inkscape plugin to export gcode for MarlinKimbra for lasers
If you like me to put my head on laser cutting free and open software, hardwares and mods, please help me to do that by donating!
