Creating a sales domain
First, you need to create a sales domain. Here are instructions how to do that.
Setting it up for laser cutting and engraving
In your dashboard, go to Wizards > Laser. You will be presented with these inputs:
This is what symbol will be displayed next to the prices in your sales domain.
Hourly cutting rate
Enter here what you charge hourly when your laser machine is running.
Minimum unit price
This is the minimum price that one individual manufactured part can cost. If you want none, leave at 0.
Minimum total price
This is the minimum price of a batch of parts. Usually what would be called a "setup cost", or the cost to change out the material in the machine to get a new job going. If you want no minimum, leave at 0.
Check this whether or not you wish to offer laser cutting.
Check this whether or not you wish to offer laser scoring. Also known as vector engraving.
Cutting / scoring jerk factor
This is a factor of how fast your machine's laser head can move in corners. The higher the jerk factor, the faster it can make a turn when cutting. This depends on your machine, and you can read more about it here.
Cutting / scoring rapid movement time
What we calculate as the time for the machine to make a rapid move from one vector to another. This depends on your machine, and you can read more about it here.
Check this whether or not you wish to offer engraving.
This is how fast your machine accelerates and decelerates when rastering. This depends on your machine, and you can read more about it here.
This is a delay (in seconds) on how long your machine stalls in the corner of every engraving line. It's usually 0. This depends on your machine, and you can read more about it here.
This is how far your machine moves past the engraving area for each engraving line. This depends on your machine, and you can read more about it here.
Now that you've filled everything in, click Create, and wait. This can take a minute or so.
The laser wizard has now set up constants, tables, and pipelines for laser cutting price calculation. These can be changed in any way you like.
You can now start adding materials. This can be done by going Tables > Laser Materials
Setting quantity discount breaks
You will also want to set up your quantity discount breaks (if you want any). That can be done in Tables > Laser quantity discounts.
Adjusting hourly rate, minimum prices and more..
This can all be done in the Constants.
