Here is my beginners guide to use diode laser machines. During the last few months, I was active in various communities dealing with diode lasers, and I noticed many similar beginners’ questions were asked nearly daily. Since it’s easier to answer them once and provide a link to this information, I created these pages. Additionally, I don’t like watching YouTube videos with explanations because at many occasions (e.g., getting the kids to sleep, late at night) I am unable to turn on sound. I then like it more to read and being able to do it on my speed. This guide is structures in various subsections, each dealing with a different aspect of the system.
If you have any further questions regarding Sculpfun lasers, I recommend having a look at the official Facebook group for Sculpfun lasers. There is a vibrant user base that is helping each other through starting problems as well as advanced specialized topics.
This guide is a work in progress, and I want to constantly improve it. If you have anything to add, found false information, errors, or the like, please let me know! I can also include your texts here, if they fit into the context. Just drop me an email or comment on the respective page. Thank you!
