Kaitian CM1309

Some friends of Noisebridge from China have donate a really nice brand new, fully supported, laser cutter to Noisebridge!

You need training to use this laser; see the Laser Manual for details.

In February of 2016 we were approached by Beijing Kaitian Tech. Co., Ltd, after Mitch gave them a tour of Noisebridge they offered us a new 100w laser cutter as a donation (with the stipulation of us taking care of shipping costs). As of July 1st 2016 (and after a crazy adventure involving a rental truck, a forklift, and a lot of Indian pizza), we now have the laser in house. Please check out our action items to see what needs to happen next.

Install Info[edit]

  • Reinstall (software) done on 1/6/2018 by Zach. USB driver seemed to install OK but RDWorks 8.01.28 would only get communication errors. Solution was to just copy old RDworksv8 folder from old C:/ to the new drive root. Older version tested and working.
