    Would a 60W MOPA work like the video I posted, or, does that look more powerful?

    I've looked at systems/options until I'm starting to understand, i think... lol

    Is Ezcad2/3 and ezcad controller the iShow of laser engraving?

    Which are the best galvos for the money? 2.5D, or just a motorized Z axis? I am leaning towards motorized X, Y, and Z.

    ... for cleaning better a rotating polygon-scanner ... for engraving big areas with a "weak" laser, better as small the galvoscanner-area, as possible (there are some with 35x35mm) and motorized X,Y,Z.

    Here my actual engraver, actually only with X-axis attached (but have another setup with XYZ and one with XY and 500x500mm travelling range):

    And here another setup with rotating axis (I can define every axis to linear or rotating):
