Alfawise C30 review: the accurate and DIY friendly laser engraver

By  Goraud Mazanec 2019-08-05 3026 0

Alfawise, the brand famous for user-friendly 3D printers, launched another pioneering product, Alfawise C30 laser engraving machine. As a desktop laser cutter, it continues the budget-friendly principle of other Alfawise products, which is a great news for home DIY fans.

Alfawise C30  

Unlike those off the shelf products, Alfawise C30 is a laser cutter machine that can fully satisfy everyone’s needs of hand-made creating and reforming. You can assemble, modify, extend, hack them and gain a lot of hands-on experiences and fun. All of these are because of a series of special designs including open structure mother board and replaceable laser module.

But before we going any further, let’s see its core function, that is, being a laser engraver, how is its engraving function.

Large engraving area

Although Alfawise C30 is delivered unassembled, you will find it very easy to build. Even a starter who knows nothing about laser engravers can assemble it within 1 hour by following the instruction and common senses. After fully assembly, the first fact be found is the big engraving area, 45*40cm, big enough to cover half the table. The no-base design allows users to engrave freely, it’s particularly useful on big surfaces, you can even carve directly on tables or floor.

Powerful 2.5W laser

The laser power is 2.5W, which is pretty good for a desktop laser cutter. For a person who wants to carve some handicraft work at home, it can meet almost all the needs. Without any special settings, by default, the user can still get pretty vector drawings on wood, wood fiber composite board, paper, leather, ox horn, bamboo, etc., basically every normal material except metal or ceramic. Because of the laser module has a 0.01mm accuracy, the engraved pattern can be very complex and full of details, no need to worry about over-punched holes or discontinues lines.

Open structure motherboard and more

After looking at the basic functions, let's take a closer look at the unique designs of C30. Alfawise C30 uses open structure mother board to give users more freedom, you can see some pins reserved, limited switches or other element can be added here, total unlocked for easy self-development and matching. Like I just mentioned, by default, the engraved pattern is good enough, but if you want to do more, such as cut deeper or engrave thicker lines, some extensions will be necessary. The open structure mother board will enable you to make some real artwork instead of small toys. More than that, the laser module is detachable, if you want to complete cut, engrave faster or try some harder material, just change the laser module into a more powerful one, update your DIY and keep the simple operation at the same time.

Alfawise C30  

In conclusion, Alfawise C30 is a decent DIY tool for starters and a very nice introduction into hardware hands-on for high-level enthusiasts. For those who own their own studio (geek style maybe) at home or in the garage, this engraving machine is the perfect choice for making phone cases, wood decorations, engraving purses, labels, etc., the only limit is your imagination. But please pay attention that Alfawise C30 has no reflection case, the high power laser can cause instantaneous eye damage, when it’s working, remember to keep the goggles on and your family or pets away from it.
