Unboxing our new Epilog Laser Cutter! Answered

We got something awesome in the mail today - our new Epilog laser cutter!

Check out the unboxing photos - I'll post more once we've got it set up and running.

It's a 75 watt Epilog laser with a 24"x36" bed - we're going to make some awesome stuff with this one. If you have some great ideas for things to laser cut, bring your plans and materials to to one of our build nights and try it out. (PM me if you have any questions.)

You can do almost anything with a good laser cutter - expect to see lots of fantastic projects posted soon!

yes yes yes! however, how much would it cost to sent that over to the uk?? I was trying to think of something that could be international. eg, the winner could enter a 'ible' upon winning they could then send another design, or the same design your way to be laser cut, that way you could have like 20 winners, instead of one person winning one massive thing, 20 people would win something smaller.

Idea: an art piece/form/thing where the art is the actual process of cutting/etching/engraving it on the laser cutter?

That, would just be (insert postitive californianism here)!

It's weird how they say that in California; we say that in Florida, no one in-between says it.

Hey, to be honest, I owe those guys over there at MAKE a lot too. They are the ones that, indirectly, pointed me towards Instructables (and I do love their mag) :-)

Why not give it out as a second grand prize in the laser cutter contest if there is one. The grand prize would be a new one and the second place for grand prize would be the old one
