I decided that a laser cutter is a perfect addition to my workshop. The problem with laser cutters is that it generates smoke so I can’t just place it next to my 3D printer in the house. At the same time, it is pretty sensitive for dust, so my workshop is not really an optimal place for it either.
The quick and dirty approach to solve this was to make a wooden box/enclosure for it, and place it in the workshop. The idea is that I’m able to place the box on the welding table while in use, and otherwise close it up and store it on a shelf so it doesn’t take space on the work area. It is still very rough version of it, and it will be update to have proper ventilation with a possibility of closing it while the cutter is running. That’s the reason why this post is marked to be “Part 1”.
I don’t know when I will have time to perfect the design, but for now it does it’s job.
