Excited to see the device I worked so hard on mentioned on Voat! Someone got it for Christmas! My labor of love from my first ever job in a lab!

What did he make with my creation?

"Dick Butt"

Wait, you invented the laser cutter? I guess there have been several iterations of the technology so to have pioneered one stage isn't that unbelievable.

well, the people using a syringe to suck blood out of a tube and inject it into a spinny thing also 'contributed' to a cure to a virus or some shit, even if all they ever did is flex their thumbs and never use their brains. Not shitting on buddies experiences or anything, but I also put up a few skyscrapers in my day if I counted my contributions as a whole.

If you wanna make some extra cash check out the dimesnions on wrist rests for mechanical keyboards. There's a guy in reddit's mech keyboard community making good cash of hunks of wood. It's the last reddit community I still deal w/ when I need rare items and out of production switches. If you'd be willing to make me a custom one out of specific wood I'd bee more than willing to pay you for your time and materials. Not kidding so let me know. The guy just selling basic wrist rests out of choice wood on reddit is making bank. You could easily usurp him w/ some custom pieces like this. The mech keyboard community is such you could sell these small personalized hunks of wood for $40+ a pop easy.

Awesome! Welcome to the world of laser cutters! You now have a hobby that will frustrate you, injure you, consume your time and seldom give you the results you want, but it's a wonderful adventure and I love it! Since it's a K40, I highly recommend you do some research on the various safety check out and fixes that make K40s safer to operate and use. They are known for electrical problems in the high voltage section so check your wiring carefully and make any necessary repairs/mods to avoid the kill-o-zap. Also, though it is the cancerous Retarddit, I would also plug the Laser Cutting sub and the more K40 specific Chinese Laser Cutters sub for a lot of good stuff from the community on techniques, support and project ideas. I'm happy to see another Goat join the laser cutter community so happy lasering and don't ever run PVC/vinyl in your laser! Merry Christmas!

Wow, thank you for all the info! Haven't tried PVC or any other plastics yet. I'd expect to see some evil soot tendrils or similar?

Anyway, just in case this is of use to someone. I stumbled upon the K40 Whisperer software, before the machine was delivered and use that with Inkscape. Pretty happy with it. Never even installed the "original" software. Bonus: runs under Linux.

Also found this Swedish page.

I'll be sure to check out the links you posted. Merry Christmas to you as well!
