“Can I laser cut and engrave any wood?”
Seeing as wood is a natural material, you need to consider a few factors before you drive right in. These include the density and resin content of your chosen wood. Soft woods, like balsa, require very little laser power and can be cut very quickly. However, hardwood is much denser and requires more laser power. MDF, which consists of glue and wood fibres, should always be used with compressed air. If you’re still unsure of which wood to choose, Trotec sells a range of laser wood in many different finishes, thicknesses and colours.
