Welcome to the LaserBeaver project.
On this website you can find information about the development of an open source laser cutting machine and its software.
The main purpose of this site is to
- Design a fuly functional high quality laser cutter (40Watt)
- Create the needed electronics and firmware for the machine
- Write host software to drive this machine from a PC/MAC or a raspberry pi with touchscreen.
On my journey to develop all of this, I will write all kinds of articles related to laser cutting and cnc mechanics + off course also the needed knowledge I gathered to write firmware for this specific machine.
The whole project is available as open source with a creative commons attribution license.
Have fun browsing around
