Annnnnd we officially have our SECOND laser in the house, as we just added the xTool D1 10W to our arsenal of awesome tech tools. When MakeBlock, the makers of xTool, reached out to us to see if we’d like to try the D1, we jumped at the chance, as it’s a completely different kind of laser than what we’re used to.
The xTool D1 is a diode laser that’s not enclosed, but it features a pretty sizable bed size (and therefore working area). D, in particular, loves that you can just pick this laser up and put it on top of pretty much anything that’s laser compatible, adding to its benefits. And at a more accessible price point than more expensive options, we’ll say that it’s a great laser to get your feet wet with.
Check out our first impressions of the xTool D1, and see how we made our first project:
