Part Kits

I have received a lot of requests for part kits. So, here they are. This is for the laser cut parts only. I am basically selling the parts for my expenses, plus a little wear and tear on my machines. Remember, this is open source, so you can get the parts elsewhere too.


Email me at Please don't use the forum to request kits.


Kit Description Price Image of parts Part Are Used To Make This
Mechanism Kit
These are all the Acrylic parts you will need to build the X and Y axes. See this drawing to see all the parts. $35 XY Kit XY Snapshot
Z Lift
These are all the Acrylic parts you will need for the Z lift assembly. I will also include 4 tee nuts to insure they match the cuts for them. See this drawing to see all the parts. $35 Z Kit Z Lift snapshot
These are made from HPDE. I will also include the nylon screws. You will need a least 2 kits. See this drawing to see the parts. $10 Tube Mount Kit  
All of the hardware is off the shelf, but might be hard to find at a good price in small quantities. This kit contains all the nuts, bolts, screws, etc to build the laser. It also contains a few other items. Look at this page to see all the items included. Click on the image to see a larger view. $58 Tube Mount Kit  
Motor Ki
This contains the 3 motors you will need to build the laser. These motors are custom selected as best for this laser design. The X and Y motorss are 0.9 degree/step which allows high resolution and smooth movement. They are found on many higher quality commercial lasers, but hard to find for sale by themselves.

There are detailed drawings of them with specs. on the drawings page.
This contains all of the bearings you will need.
  • (Qty 9) V Groove Bearing
  • (Qty 14) 8 mm ID 22mm OD 7mm Thk bearing for z lift
  • (Qty 4) .25 ID .625 OD .190 Thk bearing for XY Mechanism
The kit consists of (2) assembled Z carriages for the enhanced Z axis upgrade. This upgrade removes any wobble that might occur during Z movement. This is not nessesary for laser only mode. It contains all the acrylic parts plus 6 v bearings. $69  
These are 0.9deg step motors. See the full specs in drawing here $22.00  
V Groove
See Drawing $7.00  
Assist Air
This is an assist air nozzle that is designed to go over the basic Chinese nozzle sold by LightObject and others. It uses a standard barbed fitting (included) with a 1/8 NPT thread.

Limited quantity available in 2-4 weeks.
I can make custom power distribution assemblies. I have all the blocks, rail, separators, jumpers, end plates, wire, terminals and power entry connectors. Just tell me what you need and I will build it quoted  
Laser Interface PCB Wiring your own laser can be a messy job. This interface board cleans that up by making all the connections point to point and tieing all the common points together. It has 5V & 3.3V power on board for logic supplies and switch pull-ups. There is a user guide, drawing, schematc and even the gerber files on the drawings pages. $40  
This is a basic interface panel that includes an E-Stop button, a push button for manually firing the laser and a 5K pot with knob. There is a drawing here. It is not wired and does not include wire.

If you want to customize it, just send me a drawing.

This is a 25mA cuttent meter. It is a good range to 40w tubes which generally run in the 20mA range. Datasheet $16.50  
Tygon Tubing I have 1/4" I.D and 3/16" I.D. Tygon Tubing both are 1/16" wall. This is great tubing for liquid cooling and assist air. It has very high chemical resistance, is very flexible and resists kinking. 1/4" = $1.80/ft
3/16" = $1.50/ft
Cable 22awg Stranded 4 conductor Cable (Belden 8444). Perfect for extending the wires on NEMA 17 & 34 stepper motors. $0.80/foot  
Not using my design? I may be willing to cut parts for you anyway. Send me an email with your drawings. quoted

$175 Note: This is fully supported license. You may find this cheaper on other sites, but Artsoft will not provide direct support to people who buy at a discounted price. You will receive the license via email as well as on a 4GB USB flash drive.

Purchasers also get a $20 discount on parts for the laser.

All parts are cut to order , so it may be up to a week before I cut the parts. The price does not include shipping.


Shipping: I prefer to ship using USPS fixed price shipping. This is basically about $5 for small stuff and $10.50 for larger stuff. Some of the acrylic kits will fit in the smaller box. Just about any combination of other stuff will fit in the larger boxes. I will let you know when you tell me what you want. I have shipped internationally and the price to most countries will be about $30-$55.


Affiliate Parts

The parts below are from suppiers I have setup an affiliation with. They pay me a small commision for sending customers to them. This does not affect the price to you. These are all suppliers that I have used and recommend. You will pay them and they will ship direct to you. This helps me pay the cost of running this web site.
