My new laser (a DSP1060 with an RDC6445G) was just delivered on Wednesday and I’ve got it up and running, but haven’t put it in a permanent home in my shop yet.
I’m curious how other people have set up their work areas when they have large machines and other equipment. I see people running desktop lasers where they can see into the machine while sitting at the computer running it, but that doesn’t work well for a machine this size.
I’m sure my setup will evolve as I learn and use the machine, but it’s going to be a pain to move things because I’ll probably need to run overhead supports for the vent duct, power, and data - all of the space along the walls is already occupied by other equipment, most of which is capable of throwing metal chips and lubricant around and can’t get too cozy with the laser. I’d love to get some pointers from people who have been running largish machines effectively and maybe skip an iteration or two of layout revision.
