CNC Laser Machine Stories
- García from SpainPosted on Jan 16, 2021
I received my laser yesterday, good machine right out of the package, and I assembled it immediately. I finished installation and setting up today, and had a test for wood cutting. Awesome. My neighbor was looking for a CO2 laser cutter to try too， and she came over to test it. Everything is as she wanted. I am looking forward to getting into the laser cutting and engraving in the next week.
- Martindale from AustraliaPosted on Oct 28, 2020
As the saying goes: "You get what you paid for". The metal laser cutter arrived well packed and showed no shipping damages.
The laser machine was "functional" after the first start to use it for different metals and thickness you need to be willing to invest quite a bit time and mechanical changes to get this unit as you want it.
- Jacob from United StatesPosted on Oct 27, 2020
I purchased this unit to create customized ornaments and momento items for craft shows. It was setup easily. Learning the best settings for what I wanted to create was a little bit harder and required a few test pieces before I sorted it out. Now I've had this laser engraver for 20 days now and I feel like I've used it enough to know the pros and cons. I use it all the time, and sell some of the items I've engraved on it. It's a great value.
- Gerry R Fredericksen from United StatesPosted on Aug 30, 2020
This is my first laser marking machine. I read lots of reviews and decided to try it out. It arrived in 15 days and Was easy to assemble. I am not the fastest, but it took me a little over an hour to put it together. I am using that at the moment, and it seems to work fine.
- Noah from United StatesPosted on Aug 26, 2020
I bought this machine last month. Shipping was really fast and well packing. I was so worried because of overseas buying. But my machine is pretty good. I tried to engrave on acrylic and wood but both came out great. It was very easy setting for beginners. This is my first laser engraver machine. But just amazing for me!
- Anita B Bailey from United StatesPosted on Aug 19, 2020
I used my birthday money to invest in this as a hobby to earn a little extra money. I'm totally new at this kind of machine and after some trial and error, I figure out how to laser cut wood. After about 20 days worth of use, the laser cutter has been worked quite well and is sufficient for the jobs I am interested in doing, i.e. laser cutting wood craft parts. The operation is very simple and direct, but you must take safety precautions (goggles included) because the laser light is very powerful. All inquiries I subsequently made to the STYLECNC team were answered promptly and very kindly. I recommend this kit for both beginners or for more professional jobs. Overall, I am very pleased with the laser machine, customer service, and of course, the things that I am able to create. I'm definitely looking at a bigger, more powerful laser in the future to increase creative possibilities.
- Richard L Hargrave from United StatesPosted on Jul 22, 2020
The engraver is great for my stainless steel engraving plan and the customer service is unbelievable. They can always respond in less than 24 hours with intime support and best solutions. Mike was very supportive and help me to install the software and always kept on the loop with the updates. Look like in PC they are still more advanced but what you can do with this laser machine connected with my laptop is really impressive. It is very easy to operate and the quality is superb. I do work professionally with AutoCAD and that's an A+ product. You are buying not only a good fiber laser engraver but a fantastic costume experience.
- Terry A Dunlap from United StatesPosted on Jun 11, 2020
Awesome, I read all the reviews and compared different laser machines before ordering this unit, I have to say that the offline option is nice. If I save the photo in the proper format on the USB, then I can set up the engraver wherever I want without connecting to the computer. I had some questions regarding the laser software so I reached out to the contact. They got back to me within one hour and answered all my questions. I engraved some items, including wood, cardboard, leather, paper, and I’m very impressed with the results. The only thing that will take practice is learning the best laser power settings, as the other reviewers had mentioned. So far I am very happy with the engraver.
- Jane from United StatesPosted on Apr 21, 2020
If you are a computer person, or even relatively technologically savvy, this will be easy for you to use. If you are not, it comes with an instruction manual which I highly suggest reading before using. I use the laser engraver primarily for leather engraving. First, I focused the laser beam into a pinpoint. Then I tested with different settings of laser power and engraving depth. Full laser power, full engraving depth, expect a lot of smoke, and burn edges. I am using 60 watts laser power, 30 engraving depth for leather with minimal smoke and nice results.
The more impressive thing for me was the detail that this thing is capable of. I can literally engrave fonts that are around size 8 and they burn crystal clear with my settings. I suggest doing a lot of experimenting because in the end, once you get the right calibration, this thing is capable of incredible detail and quality engravings. You may also want to mess around with the contrast settings if you are engraving complex images. For tiny details, you may want to try using the lowest possible settings in the laser power and laser engraving depth.
- Alfie from United KingdomPosted on Mar 26, 2020
I'm an avid crafter and work with computers, so I didn't have any issues acclimating to the software. You have to get a feel for the configuration settings, but that varies by the media you are cutting upon and takes some minor trial and error. I bought a MDF board and played until I got the settings the way I wanted. I had a few newbie questions of the vendor and I found the email response was FANTASTIC and vendor was definitely committed toward me getting the most of this laser machine and went above and beyond to ensure my satisfaction. If you're looking for a laser cutter to get a feel for this type of craft, I can HIGHLY recommend this cutter. Happy "cutting" :)
