I'm looking for laser files for the SM1

Hello dear friends!
I still have very little experience with the SM1 laser. Some time ago I also bought a stronger module. Now I want to try it out too. In order to have some successes I would like to try out some files. Now to my question! Is there a collection of files that are freely available? I’ve already spent a few hours searching the net for it. Unfortunately with very little success! Can someone help me?
Thank you in advance for that!

If you’re looking for things to cut out, there are some on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=laser+cut&type=things&sort=relevant .

If you’re looking for pictures to laser-engrave, you can get a wide assortment of public domain SVG files from https://freesvg.org/ (check tags like “black and white” or “silhouette” to find things that are more laser-friendly, and ignore the stuff in the ad-box near the top of the page).

If youre interested in making your own Cutouts, having a programm which created SVGs like Inkspace is a starter. It has a learning curve though, but with the Interwebs on your side you shoudl be bale to make thigns yourself. I didnt do much lasercutting so far as i didnt have the need but its a cool option for sure.

What you have to think about, if you have a 200mW Module you wont be able to cut every material, even a 1.6W isnt sufficient for everything but testign out should work. Also VENTILATE the bit ive tried i had a horrible headache after it.
