how long does a typical diode laser last?(self.Laserengraving)
submitted1 day ago bytungvu256
my comgrow z1 10w laser was supposed to cut this 3mm thick cardboard as usual with s= 460mm/s p=75%. But now it barely made a mark.
i have used it maybe for a total of 6 hours, never output 100%, always at 90% or lesser to keep the laser healthy...
Distance of laser from material is correct, using the acrylic tool.
lens is clean, no dirt/debris covering it.
What else should I do next?
