Spider X1 Laser Engraver Review: Infinite Engraving Work Area


Spider X1 launching is breaking news in the laser engraving machine industry. Spider X1 is the world’s first engraving machine that offers literally super large work area that meets DIY enthusiasts’ needs for small, medium, and large engraving projects. Minimalist design, super larger cutting area, infinite engraving area, honeycomb-free, portable, and super easy to assemble, those innovative and genius conceptions really blow my mind.

You may ask, is such a ground-breaking laser engraver and cutter machine affordable? must be expensive! But you are wrong this time, Spider X1 is crowdfunding on Kickstarter now, the Spider X1 20W only sold for $616 which is cheaper than other 20W laser engravers and cutters.

Extendable Y-X axis turns into infinite engraving or super larger cutting

Spider X1 allows you to engrave without a frame on any materials. With the rollers, it replaces the limited Y-axis space which allows you to have an infinitely longer Y-axis! In the past, we are always unable to do the larger project limited by laser engravers that only have the about 400mm X-Y axis frame. Spider X1 laser engraver and cutter breaks this limit and lets DIY enthusiasts able to do super larger projects, which endless your imagination.

Extendable Y-X axis turns into infinite engraving

We understand that certain projects may require more engraving or cutting than others, while some may need a balance of both. We are pleased to inform you that this machine has been created with Dual Modes, including both engraving and cutting modes, to cater to your specific work habits and preferences.

In the engraving mode, Spider X1 gets out of the Y-axis frame, which makes it able to engrave a super longer area. There is no laser engraving machine like it that can achieve this infinite engraving area, which brings endless creative ideas to creators.

This laser engraving machine is really cool because it has an innovative cutting mode framework. It’s designed with a three-sided enclosure, but don’t worry, one side is reserved as an entrance so you can easily get your materials in and out. This smart design makes the machine more stable while still giving you the flexibility to maneuver your product. Plus, it helps you save on materials by enabling really precise, parallel positioning of the laser cutting height.

If you replace the X-Y axis extended frame, the cutting area can be from 400 mm*400 mm extended to 800 mm*800 mm. It is the easiest way to extend both the X and Y axis, unleashing the limitless creativity of your DIY spirit.

Batch production easily

Another fantastic feature of the Spider X1 laser engraving machine is its ability to address a typical customer complaint: batch production. You’ll have a wider work surface to work with thanks to its enlarged X and Y axis, allowing you to engrave and cut many objects at once. This is particularly beneficial if you need to generate a big number of goods in a short period of time.

But hold on, there’s more! You may even stack numerous Spider X1 machines on the same rail if you truly want to boost your production efficiency. This implies that you may have numerous tasks at the same time, improving your productivity and output even more.

Safe to use and portable

The Spider X1 machine features a switch that is activated when it detects it being raised. This means that if you raise or move the machine while it is in use, it will instantly cease operating, preventing any potential mishaps or injuries. This capability is very useful when working with strong laser machines such as the Spider X1. Accidents can happen in any workplace, but the Spider X1 is built with safety in mind, keeping you and your team safe while operating the machine.

Spider X1's very tiny size

When it comes to portable and user-friendly laser engraver and cutter, the Laserpecker LX1 is a popular choice. However, if you’re in the market for an alternative option, the Spider X1 is definitely worth considering.

The Spider X1’s tiny size is one of its distinguishing qualities, making it exceedingly easy to carry around. This machine won’t weigh you down whether you’re going to a crafts class, a friend’s house, or just want to take your engraving tasks outside. Furthermore, its modest size means it won’t take up much room while not in use, making it an excellent choice for individuals with limited storage space.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the Spider X1 is its potential to be utilized anywhere. Unlike bigger, less portable engraving machines, this one does not require a dedicated workstation or studio to use. As long as you have a flat surface to work on, and you can engrave that always enjoy it, which opens up a whole new world of possibilities for creative expression.
