I've been using my laser cutter for a few months now, cutting and selling the jewelry I make with it. It's reliable and works really well. The default laser settings are great for cutting, and the mirrors stay aligned perfectly (which is an issue for some cheaper laser cutters). Overall I'm very happy with my purchase!
The software is intuitive and allows you to cut and score svg files, as well as engrave or grayscale images from jpeg/png/pdf files. The image capture function is very useful; it makes it very easy to line up your project with the material on the laser bed... I give the LC40 five stars out of five.
With prior experience using high-end Epilog Lasers, I have no issue saying that the LC40 is ahead of the game. From flipping the switch on to flipping it off, it's thoroughly a seamless experience. Additionally, Dremel's customer service is top notch... and that's another reason why I gave it 5 stars.
