Founded by a group of passionate young engineers and designers, FLUX, a Taiwan-based company made a remarkable introduction in 2015 by setting a 40-day crowdfunding record of more than $1.64M with 2,500 backers around the world. With a passion for digital creation and a goal to make affordable, easy-to-use tools for makers and designers worldwide, FLUX introduced one of the world’s first modulized 3D printer FLUX Delta+ in 2017 and laser cutting Beambox in 2018. This year, FLUX released the world’s smallest CO2 laser cutting and engraver, beamo, offering creators around the world the most affordable and user-friendly tool for creation.
Beamo is small and powerful, taking up only the footprint of four letter-size papers. It offers features of a professional industrial laser cutter with a friendly price and compact design that is suitable for any homes, schools, or small businesses use. Users can shape, cut, and engrave on an enormous range of materials including wood, leather, acrylic, fabric, cardboard, stainless steel, anode metal, glass, cement, and much more. Its modularized design provides users the freedom to add additional features such as autofocus, diode laser printing, or rotary printing to enjoy a precise and effortless creating experience.
Users can print via FLUX in-house developed software Beam Studio that supports Mac, PC, Linux and Chromebook, or through the iOS/Android supported app, Beamify. They support JPG / PNG / SVG / DXF files and can save the layer settings you’ve used. In addition, printing via other third-party software is supported, including Adobe Illustrator, Autocad, CorelDraw, Inkscape, and more. Beamo connects via Wi-Fi, Ethernet or smartphone hotspot. Its multi-computer control further makes it perfect and convenient for makerspaces and schools.
