Laser Cutting in Voxelizer


Start with switching your Voxelizer workflow to Laser cutting. Now you can import your .DXF files by drag and drop, or clicking File > Import > Vector data (.dxf).

The software will automatically switch you to the milling workflow after the file is imported, so you need to change it to Laser cutting one more time.

 

LASER TOOL


Set work base Z
 - Height of the toolhead on which laser cutting should start. Start with setting it around 1 mm over the material you want to engrave.

Set travel speed - Movement speed between cutting.

Set work speed - Movement speed when cutting. For cutting thicker and harder materials, you should lower the work speed.

Set cooling time - Time between the cutting is finished and the extruder starts its travel move. It allows the laser to cool down a bit.

Repeat count - The number of repetitions until the material should be cut.

Drop length - How much the toolhead should be lowered after every repetition.

ARM/DISARM - When your machine is connected to the computer, this option allows arming and disarming the mounted laser toolhead (it’s indicated with a red diode on top).

Go to work Z - It moves the toolhead to a previously set working height allowing you to attach the material and check whether the toolhead will collide with it.

 

EDIT MODE

In general, it’s for navigating your .DXF files on the working bed.

View - You can turn the view with your mouse.

Move - This enables you to move your file around the table with a mouse.

Add - Enables you to draw and add lines to your existing .DXF file.

Remove - Delete and subtract lines from your existing .DXF file.

Scale bar (green spot) - Adjusting this bar makes your .DXF bigger or smaller.

Clear all - Deletes all imported files.

Add text - Allows you to type text which automatically becomes a .DXF file.
