You can use reclaimed wood in order to last cut an office sign. Laser cutters are typically used for cutting and engraving and the Dremel laser Cutter is one of the ones on the market. One of the issues with this particular cutter is that it struggles to cut plywood that is thicker than 1/8 of an inch. The cutter is designed to max out at around 1/4 of an inch. This prevents the laser cutter from being turned into a CNC which uses steel cutting heads to do its cutting.
- Laser cutters are known for cutting and engraving but the Dremel Laser cutter has some limitations.
- The Dremel cutter had issues cutting through plywood that was thicker than 1/8 of an inch.
- The problem with this laser cutter is it’s not designed to cut anything thicker than 1/4 inch and ultimately can’t be turned into a CNC.
“Welcome back to the DIY-IT Desktop Fabrication Discovery Series here at ZDNet. Today, I’m making some signs from reclaimed wood. But not just any reclaimed wood. When the Dremel Laser Cutter arrived, it came on a shipping pallet. I thought it’d be cool to chop off some slabs of wood from that specific pallet and turn them into personalized signs for my very cool editors at ZDNet.”
