System Softwares

Laser Cube Controled by the Grbl Motion Control Software, it uses standard G-Code to interpret designs.    

For G-code file, you have options to chose a software for it.  

In Easy G-code software, you can use your favorite images or pictures, through Easy Gcode software to generated your Gcode file , and send to the laser for cutting or engraving.

Safety 

Laser can injure or blind you if not use properly. Please alway wear appropriate eye protection when operating the Laser .The laser cutting process also produces fumes that may be toxic from certain materials. Make sure the air good enough around your working area . Keep it away from children and other people who are not familiar with using such a cube. 

Stretch Goal ---$25,000

We are going to enhance and improve parts of components. They will optimize our cube and make it works and looks better. They are:

1. The new designed of laser.   

The new one is built inside of the heat sink. The fan is placed on the top for ventilate the air and provide more protection to longer its lifetime. The integral design is neat the space.

2. The framework is all used aluminum instead of black Acrylics. A steel “L” connector secured the framework. Those entire replacements make the cube is stable and stronger.

 3. The little blue piece is made of 3D printer. It is used to stable the timing belt. Add a little light bule color; the cube looks more gorgeous.

4.The thickness of acrylic is increased from 5mm to 8mm. it provides more tolerance and endurance for the main parts.

Why do we need your support?

We need your support to launch this laser cube and Gcode software. We are raising fund for manufacturing, packaging, and logistics. Your  support for the production of these laser cubes will bring meaningful and pleasurable all around you. Thank you for taking time to help us make this project achievable.

Risks and challenges

After launching the first laser cube project, we were able to learn a lot more about the many aspects of crowd funding. We've been working to improve every step along the way from production costs to shipment methods .

Our relationship with our suppliers and manufactures are getting stronger after the first project. we were so happy and appreciated that they gave us prompt support as we needed so that we could almost met each of our shipment deadline.

Here ,we have confidence to ensure stock and lead-times are within our production requirements; and ensure all the components have been testing and met the highest standard.
