How different is making a cnc mill from a laser cutter? Answered
I am interested, after reading a good instructable about making a CNC Milling machine.
I also am interested in taking the bulk of that information and using it to make a laser cutting machine too. I know laser cutters only need 2 axis, but what sort of base would you want to use so one doesn't cut or engrave the cutting surface, and what other modifications would be needed?
