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: diy3dtech.com/ORTUR_Laser_Master ). The Ortur Laser Master II with its large size is great for making Kaizen tool cut outs using FastCap style foam (see more here: amzn.to/37EcY0V ). So if your a maker you need one of these to start organizing your shop today!

One of the important things to note is the G8 lens is a very important piece in making cuts to thicker materials because of its long focal length. It will produce a narrower kerf over a greater distance.
