In my effort for changing from my current 40w Laser Diode machine to a K40 machine, I have a few doubts.
-K40 is on my budget, but the bed size is just… enough. Is there any alternative (not much more expensive) for 30x40 cms size?
-I love LightBurn, and have read that there is no direct support, but you can purchase an alternate motherborad. Not much more money to spent on this (at least, currently), so… can I export LightBurn proyects to any format, so other software can burn it?
-Currently I use an external controller on my CNC machine. How can I use the K40 without a computer? I have not a computer to spare with the machine, so I had to buy an old computer for this… K40 350€, old computer 300€, so… the K40 is 650€ for me… any better alternatives for this money? (although I would love to stay on 350€ budget…)
-To cut 3mm MDF I use 70mm/min, and my proyects take around 30 minutes to burn… 30*70=2100 mm cut per sesion. What is the cutting speed of a K40? (so I could math my 2100mm to know the estimated time for a K40 to cut the same proyect).
Agai, your help is greatly appreciated.
