I have been working on attaching a laser to my CNC router, and after coming up with a way to mount it, control intensity and focus, feed rates, modifying my CNC controller and my CAD/CAM software to recognize the laser, I think I’ve finally got a handle on it...I’ve attached an image that I had previously cut with an engraving bit on my CNC router and was able to modify the program to burn it with the laser.

pretty cool!
I always wondered why this wasn't "A thing"
(seems like a logical adapatation)

Phil,

I just looked over some of your past threads to see your CNC work, very nice. Since you're in Charlotte, you think I could swing by sometime to see it? I'd love someday to have a CNC in the shop, and could get some good ideas from your setup & experience.
