Guides and Tutorials for the Lasercamm Rapid Prototyping Machine:
Note on Terminology: Lasercamm is just one brand of Laser Cutters.

Tips and Tricks:
  • Keep AutoCAD layer names simple and without special characters. Also keep Window's file and folder names simple and without special characters.
  • Save as a 2000 DXF. While other 'year' versions of DXF work, 2000 DXF is still the most reliable.
  • Explode your CAD drawings, both your escapement wheel AND your pendulum, at least twice EACH. This is to guarantee that you no longer have any regions. If you do still have regions, the Lasercamm will ignore them and cut everything else. It is perfectly okay to use the explode command 200 times, as segments that have already been exploded will not be damaged in the process.
  • Use the AutoCAD Delete Duplicate Lines tool.
  • If your file is not cutting and you are using a flash drive with any form of notable security on it (i.e. SanDisk Secure Access), try moving the files into a new folder on the desktop. Just be 100% sure that you delete said folder when you are done cutting.
