Ortur Laser – Recipes for Cutting Thick Foam Easy!

In this episode, we will be we will be looking what you will need to cut thick ( Polyethylene – Fastcap Kaizen) foam with the Ortur Laster Master II (see more here: ). The Ortur Laser Master II with its large size is great for making Kaizen tool cut outs using FastCap style foam (see more here: ).
