I have not got a laser yet, I plan to start with a J-Tech 7w diode on a Onefinity CNC, then upgrade to a mid-sized Co2 laser from Aeon or ThunderLaser.
I see several posts from time to time on the Aeon and ThunderLaser facebook pages from new folks asking about if they should get the camera. Often I see replies like “I used the camera on my Glowforge all the time but since getting my (Insert Large Co2 brand here) laser I never need or use the camera. Save your money you don’t need the camera”
This confuses me. I thought the purpose of the camera was to be able to align designs on material anywhere on a material at any angle to easily use scraps or to more precisely place designs on a project? Why would the camera on a craft laser be invaluable but on a pro level laser be a waste of money?
