Open Source Lasercutter Reaches Version 2

Bart from buildlog.net wrote in to share his latest DIY laser cutter design, the 2.X laser. The mechanical parts are all either off-the-shelf or lasercut, and it can be controlled using a number of standard electronics sets. Oh, and did we mention it’s all available with a Creative Commons license?

The second generation open source laser cutter/engraver design from buildlog.net is complete. The new machine is called the Buildlog.net 2.x Laser. The name comes from the fact that this is the second generation machine and it is basically a 2 axis design. The third, vertical axis, is manually controlled with an optional upgrade to digital control. The 2.x Laser takes all the optimizations learned from the first laser and all the other lasers documented on buildlog.net forum.
The usable work envelope is 12” x 20” x 4”. The internal design has been optimized so the overall size of the machine is much smaller than the previous design and can easily fit on a small table. It is designed to work with 40W CO2 lasers sealed gas lasers. The frame is built from inexpensive 20mm aluminum T Slot extrusion and the skin is made from a painted aluminum and HDPE laminate.
