It's actually not that bad, once you get it down. It maybe takes 2-3 hours, maybe less. It's been a while since I have made one. Maybe this year for Valentines, I'll make another one.
I appreciate the kind words!
That's a really impressive build! I'm glad you mention what software setup you use. It seems like so many of these CNC projects show just the hardware, and fail to mention how they actually get the data fed to the machine. I'd love to build a similar rig, but with a larger z-axis.
From what I understand, they behave considerably better. Pretty much instant light - no slow warm up.
I'm curious - why the use of chopped strand mat as opposed to a woven fabric?
I bet that works much faster!
Ha ha, I like it!

I wouldn't doubt it. Since there's not too many coconuts up here in Canada, so finding a tool like that up here would be nearly impossible.
