1600mW Laser cutter module

Hi, Has anyone used this module, i am thinking of buying one, does it also laser - I am new to all of this and loving my Snapmaker but the standard laser struggles to laser onto hard wood, will the 1600mW laser cutter or am i doing something wrong?

Yes, it can write onto (hard) wood very well. This is the best application for the laser. It can also cut thick paper but don’t believe the promotional video’s from Snapmaker that it cuts (thin soft) wood.

Thank you for your reply

I understand its the same laser as in the Snapmaker 2 and that can cut 1.5mm ply easily, 3mm ply is a struggle but can be done depending on glue formulation but above that it’s very hard. Good summary of what can be done here.
