“The MicroSlice works in exactly the same way as larger professional laser cutters. There are two stepper motors which move the X & Y Axis, a fan for ventilation, and there’s even a honeycomb cutting table, just like the pro machines,” Gregory L. Holloway explained in a recent Kickstarter post.
“The MicroSlice uses a high-power Laser Diode, [while] the Grbl Motion Control Software [leverages] industry standard G-Code to interpret your designs. Using Inkscape you can draw, design and plot patterns to engrave or cut with your MicroSlice.”
