How it works
Firstly an image is converted into refrence points from a drawing.
Generation of the laser beam involves stimulating laser gas, by electrical discharges or lamps within a closed container. As the laser gas is stimulated, the beam is reflected internally by means of a partial mirror, until it achieves sufficient energy to escape into a lens. Mirrors are typically used to direct the beam through the lens, which focuses the light at the work zone. The narrowest part of the focused beam is generally less than 0.32 mm. in diameter.
