FLUX Laser Cutters
Laser cutters offer precision and detail that would be tough to achieve without an industrial-grade machine. Not only can these machines cut, but they can also engrave a wide range of materials.
Flux offers three different laser cutters: Beamo, Beambox Compact, and Beambox Pro allowing for an even larger variety of applications. When comparing from Beamo to Beambox Pro, each model has an increased workspace size and wattage (power), allowing for bigger and thicker objects to be cut at a quicker speed.
When using a Flux laser cutter, there are many options to choose from when creating and crafting. A few of the many materials that can be cut or engraved are:
Leather Acrylic Wood Cardboard Glass Anodized Aluminum Fabric Stone/Tile Silicone Paper
When it comes to controlling a laser cutter, Flux laser cutters and their custom software known as Beam Studio can be used by beginners through experts to create amazing projects like a pro! Further, features like a live camera preview, allow for ease-of-use with the ability to drag and align an image directly onto an object for perfect placement.
