L-CHEAPO DIODE LASER CUTTER

L-Cheapo is a high power solid state laser device, designed to be mounted to CNC gantries such as 3d printers, engravers, plotters, or mills, in many cases without impeding normal tool operation. Without any tools, an L-Cheapo mounted on a 3d printer can swap from lasing to printing in under two minutes. The L-Cheapo is open source hardware, designed and manufactured in the USA since 2014. Though imitations try, nothing beats the reliable solid-state output per dollar of L-Cheapo.

What can L-Cheapo do? It can cut and engrave acrylic, wood, leather, plastic, glass, and even engrave brass, copper, iron, aluminum, and mild steel! It can also be used to sinter resins, and rapidly cure silicones. With a measured workpiece output of up to 10.0W, and able to run continously for hours, anything you can’t cut in a single pass can be iterated on without the risk of overworking the laser. This offers an accessible solution to the hobbyist market for large laser projects.
