*Note: This is the lab testing data based on our current machine. There is still much development and testing going on, so results may change in the future.
Normally, a laser cutter can perform very well on many materials such as wood, metal and glass. However, for some soft materials such as vinyl, which can be used for DIY T-shirts, sign making, logos and more, a blade cutter is preferable to avoid the burnt edge, discoloration and toxic fumes generated by laser cutting.
With xTool M1 which has both the laser and blade heads, you don’t have to waver between a laser cutter or a blade cutter (or breaking the bank to buy both). Your ideas can be realized on just one machine.
To achieve adequately strong laser cutting and engraving power at an affordable price, we chose a diode laser instead of CO2 laser.
For xTool offical materials, xTool M1 software auto-recognizes materials and recommends default parameters for cutting and engraving accordingly.
- Numbers of digital design files for you to download.
- Multiple project cases with detailed instructions including digital design files, step by step instructions, materials checklists, and parameter settings.
Now, during our Kickstarter campaign, we are offering the best-ever price of xTool M1 starting from only $699. That is less than 1/5 of Glowforge’s price, but still gives you about 80% of the functions of Glowforge Plus + Cricut Maker 3.
