Laser engraving is such a fun business! At first, it can be daunting. There is so much to learn. From where to buy material, laser settings, designing, and even buying the rights laser.
We started off with a Glowforge Pro and we designed a mothers day product that we thought would be a great first item for us to sell. We took the risk and posted the product on our social media. The orders started coming in and they were not slowing down. It was at this point that we realized that our first laser was not going to be the right fit for us!
We were up until 3 am each morning due to the speed of the laser and the inconstancy of the cuts on the laser. We did some more research and landed on #AEONVIP.
Right away, we knew that the Mira 7 was going to be our first choice. The speed and bed size were the biggest factors when making our next purchase.
- Super fast engraving with speed up to 1200mm/s
- 60W for faster and more consistent cut
- 17"x27" workspace
- 8" Z-axis
- Rotary option to engrave cylindrical items such as tumblers
As soon as we switched over to the Mira7 our laser time was cut to 1/3 of the time it would have previously taken us. Our only regret was not getting a larger laser!
