Would you like to turn your 3D printer into an ultimate laser engraving or cutting machine?
Endurance has invented a way to convert your 3D printer or CNC router into a cutting or engraving machine with an Endurance diode laser. The Endurance laser is the best upgrade for your current 3D printer / CNC router. An ultimate tool for your CNC machine and a 3D printer that converts it into laser cutting / engraving / etching / welding machine.

With a 5.6 watt Endurance diode laser you can engrave faster and cut deeper into materials such as: plywood, wood, acrylic, cardboard, hardboard, felt, leather, plastic (ABS, PLA), and more.

The 5.6 watt (5600 mW) diode laser is one of the most powerful and advanced laser to upgrade your 3D printer or CNC router with and is able to create beautiful engravings and laser cuts. It is very easy to install and does not require any special knowledge. It can be installed on almost any 3D printer or CNC mill. If you have any issues during installation or operation, we are always available for help and assistance.

With our laser, you can engrave and cut a variety of materials such as:

  • plywood / wood
  • MDF / balsa
  • acrylic
  • PLA / ABS
  • felt / fabric

The 5.6 watt (5600 mW) diode laser is very easy to install on almost any 3D printer using compatible mounts for the Prusa i3, X-carve, Creality3D CR - 10, Wanhao Duplicator i3, Ultimaker, RepRap, Magnum, Prism, Makerbot Cube, Picasso, Hercules, SolidDoodle, Original Prusa i3 MK2, BCN3D SIGMA, Form 2, PowerSpec 3D Pro, ORD Bot Hadron, Zortrax M200, Kossel, FlashForge Creator Pro, CEL Robox, FDM and others. If you have a printer not listed, please contact us and we will organise a mount for you.

Our lasers are very easy to operate using standard software and run on the existing 9-16V of your printer or router.

In order to create a laser engraving or a laser cut with our 5.6 watt laser all you need to do is put the piece you want to cut or engrave onto the work top. Just convert a jpeg image into a vector image and then convert it into gcode. Start the machine and enjoy watching it do its job. If you have any questions we will be happy to assist you any time. Just contact us via email or on our Facebook page.

A 5.6 watt laser can cut up to 3-6 mm (1/4'') of wood and plywood (with multi passes and sometimes require additional blowout).

We’d like to tell you about possibilities, which a 5.6 watt laser opens.

5.6 watt laser appearance

Can be mounted to almost any 3D printer or CNC mill.

Its main difference from 2.1 watt and 3.5 watt is inside. It has a more efficient cooling system and a more powerful solid-state diode. We use high quality NICHIA diodes with 445 nm wavelength. Another difference is the current strength demand. It draws 3 – 4 amps, while a 2.1W (2100 mW) and a 3.5W (3500 mW) lasers need only 1.7 – 2 amps with the same voltage of 9-16 volts.

Our tests showed that the laser is able to work 48-72 hours non-stop or perhaps even more.

Spotlights of the 5.6 watt laser

The 5.6 watt laser easily cuts plywood and acrylic 3-5 mm (0,1-0,2″) thick, and it even cuts plywood 8 mm (1/3″) thick with many passes (requires Z axes for that).

This fact is remarkable because a СО2 laser needs to have more than 60-80 W to cut plywood this thick.

The ability to cut 8 mm plywood and 5 mm acrylic allows solving a lot of customers’ practical tasks.

It should be mentioned that the same materials in different environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, etc.) might require different parameters of cutting. The color and transparency of the material matter.

The table below shows the tested materials and cutting parameters of the 5.6 watt diode laser.

Cutting parameters


It should be specified that these data are approximate, as there are many varieties of material.

Parameters for laser cutting using 5.6 watt Endurance laser.

Regular long focal lens with focal range 2-10 cm (1-4’’)

Plywood width Speed Repeats
2 mm (1/12’’) 3000 10
3 mm (1/8’’) 8000 30
4 mm (1/6’’) 500 10

Short focal lens G2 with focal range 5 mm (1/5’’)

Plywood width Speed Repeats
2 mm (1/12’’) 3000 8
3 mm (1/8’’) 1400 10
4 mm (1/6’’) 500 10
5 mm (1/5’’) 550 20

Laser cuts are made using 5.6 watt (5600 mW) Endurance laser

We used a few kinds of three-ply. Though all ply samples looked absolutely the same we obtained different results.

You can not just cut plywood, wood and acrylic with the 5.6 watt laser but you can also make work pieces for bread boards (on copper-plated glass fiber plastic) and for aluminum engraving.

The laser fits not just for cutting but for engraving as well. We wrote about it in our early articles.

Lasers are compatible with any CNC machines, plotters and 3D printers and are easy to install.
