New honeycomb..?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa363156090>

Does anyone (perhaps the gracious @lasertechs) know when the honeycomb in the laser cutter was last replaced? The last time I was in, it looked extremely grotty and uneven with several large holes. A quick search here on discourse indicates that people have been muttering about replacing it for a year or more.

A brief and cursory google search leads me to believe they may not be very expensive, but I have no expertise on the matter. Either way, is there somewhere I can pledge some cash if it means getting a new one sooner rather than later? I’m only in the space once a month or so, but it’d still be worth it: I feel like my laser jobs have been getting progressively more scorched on the underside as time goes on, and I suspect the venerable honeycomb has at least something to do with it.

It’s a bit trickier than it seems because of the slightly non-standard size of the bed, but we’re working on it!

I too am hoping that we’ll get this done soon, it’s not very nice to try and align things properly on the honeycomb and get clean cuts!
