Two trees products continue to impress me with their excellent value. The packaging is organized and secure and the included instructions are detailed and filled with great illustrations. If you pay close attention to the instructions, you should be able to complete assembly in under 30 minutes without issue.
The fixed focus laser module and included focusing tool combined with the adjustable height carriage makes it quick and painless to set the laser focus to the workpiece. Printed measurement scales on all four sides of the frame are a great reference point for positioning the workpiece and to help ensure the X axis is properly aligned with the frame. The magnetic laser cover has a funnel built in which guides the air from the module cooling fan around the laser beam and functions as a very mild air assist. Just enough to keep smoke particles from settling on the lense. I’m sure this will help with longevity. I’m not a fan of the use of POM wheels and would definitely prefer linear rails. An air assist nozzle would also be a nice addition, or a fitting to attach an air line to the magnetic cover.
Coming from a 3d printing background made assembly and setup pretty easy. I was able to produce my first photo engraving on a ceramic tile in my first day. The 5.5w model is perfect for engraving tile and quickly engraving wood and MDF.
Overall I’m really impressed with this laser engraver and would definitely buy another.
