Pro cut Cnc laser crosshair

Post by Joe243672 » Fri Jun 11, 2021 8:40 pm

Do not buy procutcnc laser crosshair. They are junk. Cheap 3D printed mounts with cheap harbor freight straight line lasers. Mine broke within a week of just sitting bolted to torch. They use cheap 3D plastic to print it and it’s brittle. I bought the wixey crosshair laser for cheaper and way nicer. Direct mount to hypertherm machine torch and lasers are quality

Pro cut Cnc garbage that cost 20 bucks more. When I got it it also came with bad laser. They told me to send it back and they would determine if it was under warranty. I told them it would be a waste of money and time. The laser cost $5 at harbor freight.

There are a few ways to this, one to have a direct point where the lasers mark your torch location. Or having an alternative location shown and using a macro to move the torch to it's center. This is how I did it simple and cheap.

I have something similar to AC, but I use my air scribe for the pointer. Just lower the cylinder, center the tip over the point and click a button. It automatically zeros, raises and moves x,y, and z to center the torch and set at the correct height ready to reference and start cutting.
I tried the laser thing, but I think the scribe point is much more accurate.
