There are many benefits of using laser engravers and CNC machines in making personalized and unique products. These machines are essential tools for makers and DIYers who want to add a personal touch to their projects. Laser engravers are an easy and versatile tool that can cut a wide range of materials, including wood, glass, rubber, acrylic, and leather. I walk through some practical tips on how to use and source materials for laser engravers and show how you can sell projects, such as ornaments and wooden signs, for a 50-80% profit margin. Finally, I discuss how CNC machines can be used for more complex projects, such as carving and milling, but requires more experience and investment.
This video covers the advantages of the CNC vs Laser. If you’re wondering on the advantages of laser cutting or CNC machining, this video is worth watching.
