I currently have an AtomStack A5 Pro, and it’s okay, but not great. I’m going to return this, and purchase a better setup.
- ORTUR Laser Master 2 Pro-S2-LF (and the 2 Pro S2 Enclosure)
- NEJE MASTER 2S MAX
- AtomStack A7 Pro
I’m leaning towards the Ortur setup. It seems the most useful, and I like the enclosure with the option to vent or fume extract with less effort compared to the others.
My use will mostly be for both cutting and engraving Rowmark LaserMark acrylic panels. Mostly it will be the .5mm material, but also sometimes the 3mm material. I will also want to engrave powder-coated steel or aluminum, but this is less common. Anything beyond that will be for fun.
Am I on the right track? Anything I should strongly consider that I didn’t list?
Side question, assuming I go with the Ortur, which LightBurn camera should I get?
My only issue with the Ortur is that the panels I cut/engrave on the .5mm material are 430mm x 63.5mm. It looks like I could center that in the enclosure, and then cut the ends of the panel with a knife, but this is obviously less desirable than having the machine do everything.
Does anybody make enclosures for the other options above? I know I could make one myself, but while I have the tools/skills, I don’t have the time or interest to DIY an enclosure.
