Back then, you need to go to a professional laser engraver service if you want to engrave something with laser technology. But now, laser engraver machine has become more common that you can even do it by yourself at the convenient of your home. Of course professional machine will be different with personal laser engraver. DIY engraver will not have all the quality a professional machine has and that is the truth you need to acknowledge. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to settle with bad personal laser engraver because there are many great products that you can choose, but you still need to be careful. To make sure that you can get a good DIY laser engraver with the quality of professional machine, here are some things you need to consider.
For a DIY machine, you definitely don’t want anything complicated because it will just be a waste of money, and also space since professional machine is always huge. For a laser engraver for personal use, it is best to choose a mini machine that will not take too much space at your office.
Furthermore, you also need to look for a DIY machine that can be connected to the computer both wirelessly with Bluetooth and physically with a USB cable. It will be much more practical and give you more options on how you can use the machine. It will also be better if the hardware gadgets of your choice can be used without having to be connected to the electricity socket all the time.
Choosing a simple machine is one thing but you should not forget about the quality as well. When it comes to quality, there are several things that a good DIY laser engraver should have. First of all is of course the laser head. It is the one that will engrave the picture to the material so the quality of the laser head and the depth of the engraving must be easily adjustable.
It will also be a nice point if the machine comes with bundled software to help editing the picture that will be engraved to the material as well as to easily monitor the engraving process from afar. Furthermore, it might sound very trivial, but you will need to use protective glass to prevent the laser from harming your eyes when you are using the machine. A good quality machine will come equipped with the protective glass so there is no need for you to purchase it separately.
