Did you know that the act of engraving an item started in the mid 15th century with goldsmiths? Of course that was a highly-manual process that took years to perfect. Now thanks to the Engravinator Kit and the power of lasers, you can engrave all your new projects yourself and sidestep the apprenticeship!
The Engravinator Kit is a build your own, open-source, laser engraver platform kit. All you need to add is your time and a laser diode module. The creators of the product, Maniacal Labs, also provide you with an extensive build guide.
The kit has a few add-on options, such as enclosure panels, 3D printed parts, or the Platypus controller. The Platypus Laser Controller, also available separately on Tindie, is the brain of the machine. Since the product is open-source, you can always opt to use your own controller if you prefer.
Whether you want to add engravings to your next small project or you need to engrave a large item like a piece of furniture, the Engravinator Kit has you covered. It can be used on larger items just by clamping it down to the item itself.
