1600mW Laser Cutting Module

Hello! I’m new and my question is: I’m interested in 1600mW Laser Cutting Module for my purpose to cut small pieces of plywood.Should I get Snapmaker original first in order to use it or it is stand alone machine?
Thank you! :pray:

The 1600mW laser cutting module for the Snapmaker original is an add-on for the machine, and only comes with the laser head itself. In order to use it, you need to have the Snapmaker original as well, as it comes with the controller and axes needed to use the laser.

If you only need a laser cutter, and not the cnc or 3d printing functions, it might be worth it to search for a dedicated laser cutter. The nature of a 3-in-1 machine means that you can probably find a dedicated one purpose machine for the same or lower price but with equal or greater performance.

Note: the 1600mW Laser Cutting Module is only for the Snapmaker original. The Snapmaker 2.0 comes with a 1600mW laser without needing to buy a separate accessory.

tldr: you need the Snapmaker original first
