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:

Currency

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.

Offer cutting?

Check this whether or not you wish to offer laser cutting.

Offer scoring?

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.

Offer engraving?

Check this whether or not you wish to offer engraving.

Engraving acceleration

This is how fast your machine accelerates and decelerates when rastering. This depends on your machine, and you can read more about it here.

Engraving acceleration

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.

Engraving overshoot

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.

Adding materials

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.
