Dremel’s forthcoming DigiLab laser cutter, announced at last year’s Maker Faire, is scheduled to drop any day now. The release date was slated for Summer 2018, and since it’s now summer we just checked their website. They’ve not updated it with a hard release date, but we do see that they’re still offering $1,000 off of the $5,999 price if you pre-order.
So for $4,999 you’d get a 40-watt machine with a 12″ x 20″ cutting area. It can cut through material up to 1/4″ thick, engrave in material up to 1.25″ thick and the machine’s footprint is 32″ x 20″ x 8.25″.
Here’s the latest video they’ve released of the machine:
Let’s just hope Dremel’s lack of a hard release date doesn’t mean we’re in for another Glowforge-like interminable delay.
