Thank you all for actively participating in the application. We are excited to announce that Alan Fox and Renee Haden-Knost were choosen as the participants for the first run of tryouts. Congratulations! Additionally, we believe there are still many suitable candidates for the tryout. I will personally contact suitable candidates from the current applicant list if there will be a second round of tryouts.
- Must: Available time in Oct.
- Prefer: Experience in both Luban and Lightburn
- Prefer: Used to share a lot of laser works and skills in the community
Hi Snapmaker 2.0 owners,
I have learned that the first batch of the new 20W and 40W laser modules will be shipped out soon. They are expected to reach users by late October. A month ago, I received a lot of excitement and requests in response to my previous post in the Facebook group, where I shared the moment of internally testing the 40W laser module. Now, I am thrilled to inform you that we have made it possible!
Here is the basic plan:
Invite Snapmaker 2.0 laser pro users who are interested in trying out the new 40W laser module. - Reply to this post if you want to join this program.
Select two users for the 1st run of the tryout program.
Send out 40W laser modules to the selected users by air this week.
Each selected user will keep and use their module for about two weeks to experience the main functions and create anything they desire.
After the initial trial run, we request the selected users to pass on the modules to another member who is interested in joining this Trial Program.
It would be appreciated if you could provide the following information:
Your country and city.
Your experience in laser engraving and cutting, including the number of years and frequency of recent usage.
Your experience in using Luban and Lightburn.
Your experience in building and modifying laser machines.
Your availability for trying out the 40W laser module in October.
Your occupation, specifying whether it is hardware, software, design, or other.
a) We may update the firmware and software during the Tryout Program.
b) Users participating in the Tryout Program will not keep the modules after the tryout.
c) Users will not be responsible for any shipping fees or taxes. However, they will be responsible for the material costs associated with creating using the 40W laser module.
d) We will provide a small thank-you gift to each user after the tryout program ends.
Please let me know if there are any suggestions to improve the plan and make it a positive action for the community.
Good luck to those who test it and make awesome things. Maybe see if some of my guides work as well so other users know in advance.
I thought you’d jump on the opportunity to try it out and make suggestions, given your experience
Given my work schedule, two weeks wouldn’t be enough time as I’d only really be able to mess with it on the weekends. Also shipping it to other users would be difficult as well, as the post office is closed by the time I get home, and not open on weekends. Otherwise I’d love to do testing, guides, etc. to help the community. No sense in wasting their time if I can’t really contribute in that timeframe.
It does sound like a fun thing to do and try. And I have done these type of reviews for other products and sites in the past.
- Laser experience with snapmaker 2.0 (1.6W and 10W laser module). Mostly done cutting of paper or thin model building type of wood (2-4mm). Currently trying to engrave tiles and experimenting with using powder coating powder to add color to laser projects.
- Only briefly used Luban for this purpose, mostly Lightburn
- My only laser machine is the snapmaker 2.0 A350; but it’s been modified (linear rails) and made some very small code commits/pull requests.
- I travel quite a lot for work, so finding a good timing could be a challenge. Would have to be after October 15th
- Professionally I’m in product management for a software/electronics company
If could join, I’d prefer it to be after I have received my quickchange kit which is on order. (I should be in the mid October batch)
I’m writing this because your name came up, but I can help with the tryouts, but there is not enough time to do many things during the two weeks…
I use both Luban/lightburn.
I mainly use a Snapmaker 2.0 10w laser to make and sell processed products.
I have 1 year of experience
I just got the Swap kit the other day.
I have not made anything complicated, but I can test it.
I appreciate the thought. Right now I am fighting with other problems on the machine. I have already ordered the laser module and am kind of regretting doing so. I got new linear modules and they are not manufactured correctly.
Darn it, I hope support will figure this out for you in no time.
Hello, I’m interested in testing this module.
Planning create some Halloween giveaways for the children, and a toy for our toddler.
Also I want to do a material test with mahogany.
5 Years: CO2 Laser, 1w lasering, 1,6 and 10 watts with snapmaker 2.0. Materials are wood, glass, slate, leather
Every two months a project. Selfmade designs and 3d models (sliced for lasering, or with finger joints). Did jewelry, decorations, practical stuff and toys so far
Using luban and lightburn since the beginning to work with snapmaker.
Modified my snapmaker with air assist and big exhaust system. Also did soldering works for tuning the printhead with additional cooling.
I’m on parental leave for 3 months. So some spare time is no problem.
I’m a Cloud System Engineer, Automation specialist
Exciting indeed. I’d love to run a Ray with a 40W and see what new guides I could do for automation. Just a bit out of my price range. Bills always come first. Nice to see them trying to get some feedback from the community to help move forward.
Thanks for tagging, unfortunately i am not able to have enough spare time for useful testing
我要不要报名呢？帖子一发出我就看到了，但被**“laser pro users”**限制 住了，因为我并不 pro ，但好像看大家的响应都不太积极，那我也参与一下吧。
