It is also fully enclosed and fitted with an air scrubbing system using a HEPA filter to mitigate the smoke emitted during the cutting.

Do I have to recalibrate the Craftlaser everytime I move it?

Also, you do not need to plug in an extra air extractor (also means you don’t need to be close to a window or door to vent the extracted air) and you also do not need to plug in an external cooling system to use it. No ugly water pipings and pails of water to deal with.

What kind of software do I need to use Craftlaser?
Inkscape, which is a free software, to import any image files, work on it and export it into a laser cutting file (gcode) for the Craftlaser.  You do not need to plug your computer into Craftlaser, just copy the file into an SD card and plug it into the craftlaser and select the option to cut.
