Material Attachment in Laser Cutting

Setting up material and attaching it in the right place on workbed is very complex process. To avoid problems with it while laser cutting please read this tutorial in which we will cover every detail in both software and hardware.

First of all make sure that you have newest version of Voxelizer software (click help->check for updates).

 When you open 2d milling workflow, on the table preview you will see blue transparent box. This object represents your material and it's placement on the table. Default values are set for 200x100x6mm plywood (placed in the middle of the table).

In this window you can set the parameters of your material. Setting X and Y dimensions of your block is easy and doesn't require explanation.

Parameter, that is more difficult to determine is material height. It is very important to set it accurately when milling since it is first layer of milling. But when using Laser toolhead, you can set it less accurately, because Laser dot focus is varies between 0.5 and 2mm from bottom of the toolhead.

NOTES:

  • When you don't know where is middle of your table, you can always burn helpful pattern from Laser_placing.gcode file in Examples folder (internal SD card of your ZMorph 2.0SX machine and newer)
