Remote CO₂ Laser Engraver/Cutter
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of our project was to develop and manufacture a CO2 laser engraver capable of being remotely controlled via the internet using a custom-built interface. The purpose of our project was to provide access to individuals who may be interested in creating custom laser engraved works but who didn’t necessarily have access to a CO2 laser engraver. Our product would allow users to design and monitor their own custom works from the comfort and security of their own homes. Our basic designs were inspired from multiple DIY examples that we found online, but nothing we found had remote access. To add this functionality, we used Microsoft Visual Studio and Client – Server based communication protocols to provide real time information about the status of the laser. We believe that our project is relevant, especially today amongst the COVID-19 outbreak, when remote access and control have become the new normal.
