I'm thinking it might be time to pick up the art of laser cutting. I have a design in mind for a new KAP rig and rather than nibble all the pieces out of aluminum, as I usually do, I think a laser cutter might be faster and more accurate.
I did a little research and found a maker space nearby where I could rent time on one, so equipment shouldn't be a problem. But before I go in there and spend the money, I thought it might be good to do some homework.
So who has worked with one of these machines? what software would you recommend for designing the shapes to cut? Any thoughts on materials suitable to KAP rigs and laser cutters?
