Does anyone have experience using a laser engraver to make models
for casting? I have researched them and do not understand why they
are not widely used in the jewelry industry for model work. I
currently use photopolymers and getting good negatives is a pain
using a laser printer. Desktop laser engravers even 12 watt models
seem to have capabilities for 2D and limited 3D cutting and
engraving on wood and plastic that can be burnt out and cast.
These machines are as simple as a printer and only cost about $7000.
The time they would save would pay for one real quick.
Looking forward to your reply.
