We are adopting the Lasersaur open source laser as our Laser Cutter platform. Lasersaur succeeded in its Kickstarter offering last year, and recently, they achieved first fire. Look at the amazing precision of the cut:
We aim to collaborate on the open-sourcing of the laser tubes themselves, so we can build higher power versions for industrial metal cutting applications in the future. We welcome collaborators on this point.
Lasersaur is a great addition to the Open Source Microfactory. See more pictures of the Lasersaur build here.
