Here’s a new thing coming on the market soon.
Claims to be able to cut wood up to 1.5mm,
thick enough for marquetry.

Work envelope is 100mm/2

That doesn’t look like much of a bargain. You can get a 2500mW unit with far more working area for about half that kickstarter price.

I suppose the primary appeals are the compact
form factor and design style.

You’ve posted that link before. It links to a review by MadMark, but you are MadMark2. Did MadMark die and come back as you?

AvE did an epic take down of the cubiio. Not Safe For Delicate Ears (NSFDE). In short, not skookum.

Having an unshielded, exposed, laser powerful enough to engrave wood flying around strikes me as a really, really bad idea.

I have a small unit that does that and I paid $49 for it off ebay including shipping.

Have your say...
