Pledge fund for the creation of a DIY open source laser cutter for Nottinghack

The initial target goal was for £1000 to create a copy of the build log laser cutter http://www.buildlog.net/blog/2011/02/buildlog-net-2-x-laser/

Stretch Goal 1 - £1250

Like any good kickstarter style project we need some additional goals, because of the speed that the first goal I'll say £1250 will get a 600x400 cutting area and a 60W laser

Stretch Goal 2 - £1500

The second goal would be to make it larger again. I think a 450x800 cutting area and an 80W laser would be a very admirable place to be.

Additional Goals

  • Vacuum Table, holds the material down and draws the smoke through the cuts rather than across the material.
  • Cool bot, based upon the london design, monitors and reports issues with the water temperature.
  • Control system, an independent controller so that the system does not rely on a PC with a parallel port.
  • Free standing, Stable freestanding base, so we don't need a massive table to hold the massive machine
  • Rotational Axis, Chuck or wheel mount to rotate item for etching, http://www.epiloglaser.com/zing_rotary.htm http://www.buildlog.net/wiki/doku.php?id=rotational
