    Hey guys,

    Laser fiber cutting or plasma cutter is a good optional.

    chinese fiber lasers like those are 25-60k.
    the marking machines are 6-15k. the big machine can mark too, but its going to be much slower at it.

    i looked into them already

    your part there is definitely a laser part, cnc routing/milling would be far more expensive and time consuming.

    It's not always worthwhile to do every job in-house. People who buy these laser cutters (and abrasive water-jet cutters) need to find work for them to do, in order to pay for them, and they often make it quite affordable for their clients. Call around; you might be surprised how cheap it is to have someone else do this for you.

    I made server mother board holders for our render farm, and i got the first 8 parts for $125cdn. the rest will be $4cdn each. 0.060 galvanised sheet. That's including 4 bends.
    so yeah, its really cheap to outsource laser cutting thin steel.

    Hello, have you bought a suitable machine now? In my opinion, a plasma cutting machine is a good choice: https://forsuncnc.com/cnc-plasma-cutter/

    There are a lot of great options out there that you can buy. CNC laser cutters are usually expensive items but now you can buy a decent one for under $1000. BOBCnc E4 is a great and perhaps the most suitable option. Still this laser engraver needs to be assembled first and has a wooden base. If your budget for a laser cutter is even below $500, I'll leave a link below that may help you out in that regard.
