It's been a long night but the laser is installed and running. We just did some power tests and it's cutting our first stencil for some snow removal signs in cardboard.
You can see at the top of the sheet where we started at 1/2 power and the engrave ( raster) mode was cutting clear through the cardboard. This laser has some juice! We adjusted it to 5% power for the rest of the layout so it just marks it on the cardboard. After we proof the marks we will go back and set up a vector cut tomorrow.
