Before buying a laser machine, you can first consult us about what you’re looking for like what materials you normally use, what is the design your working with including thickness for the application, the processing area you are working at. It is important to note that one machine cannot cover all the job you might want to do, it is then critical for our customer to have a machine that covers 80% of the job. Additionally, we may also need to go to the place where you want the machine to be delivered to check how we are able to deliver machine in the working space.
5.Which graphic software and file format do you use for your machines?
The software will be included in the purchase of the machine and we will give you the necessary training on how to use the software.
For Vector file, if your design is made using AutoCAD or any other design software, you would need to convert the file to dxf file format before importing into our laser machine software then you can start the laser process.
6.What is the recommended requirement for the computer that is to be used with your machines?
Windows 7/8/10 or Windows XP/Vista, GHz processor or faster, at least 4GB RAM, 256GB hard drive, dedicated graphics processor card, 2 USB interface.
