It all began with developing our own high-power 60W large laser cutter and engraver a year and a half ago, we turned it into a smaller version of a desktop laser cutter and engraver and named it Smart Laser Mini.
In June 2016, FABOOL Laser Mini, raised around $60 million, which was the highest amount ever in the history of major crowdfunding platforms in Japan as well as the second-highest among laser cutter campaigns in the world.
This time we are releasing the upgraded version as FABOOL Laser Mini, with improved usability, stylish design, and 1/4 of assembly time.
Extension of parts allows users to customize based on their needs. (e.g. Expanding the frame which leads to 1m*1m processing range, replacing the laser head to one with can produce higher output). Also, because both the hardware and software are open-source it's possible to add custom functions.
Equipped with a high-spec motor driver and high-speed microcomputer chip, FABOOL Laser Mini can be used in various situations from designing, to teaching, to prototyping, and more!
The free all-in-one software, which is cloud-based and works on the browser, includes functions such as creating and retrieving the processed data of products - sharing all those data and images of the products among other users.
This project is not the simple one. You need some basic knowledge of Arduino programming, PCB's, and electronics to make it.
