We’ve got a house laser (and a Community “A” below). These are lower power solid state lasers. Great for cutting light material and engraving on may materials. They’re quiet but make lots of fumes.

To install, always keep the laser itself unplugged for safety. That means unplug the laser module from the controller so it can’t fire up by accident.

Install Benbox software. It’s fairly self explanatory but you can find lots of youtube video and Web pages explaining how to use it.

Other software may work.


Here’s our first “Community A” machine.
