xTool M1 is a laser engraving and cutting machine, but it's more than that, it's an entirely new way of bringing creative designs to life.

It’s the first-ever desktop hybrid laser cutter/engraver and blade cutter.

What's more, M1 is also an affordable and easy-to-use machine, making it easy for people of all ages to create with a wider range of materials in their own home.

Creation is meaningful, and it is everywhere around us. We can make custom t-shirts to stand out from the crowd, personalize a mug with a photograph to keep a special moment close to us, or make unique gifts for our loved ones.

Our creativity inspires endless ideas, but the limitation of available tools and expertise prevents us from turning ideas into reality. That’s the problem we want to solve: How to help people create without the need of expensive professional tools and know-how.

With that goal in mind, we created xTool M1: the ultimate all-in-one cutting machine capable of laser engraving, laser cutting, and blade cutting. Being intuitive, user-friendly, and affordable, this versatile new tool opens up endless possibilities to set your creativity free.

Laser Engraving

Laser Cutting

Blade Cutting

Normally, a laser cutter can perform very well on many materials such as wood, metal and glass. However, for some soft materials such as vinyl, which can be used for DIY T-shirts, sign making, logos and more, a blade cutter is preferable to avoid the burnt edge, discoloration and toxic fumes generated by laser cutting.

With xTool M1 which has both the laser and blade heads, you don’t have to waver between a laser cutter or a blade cutter (or breaking the bank to buy both). Your ideas can be realized on just one machine.

The only limit is your imagination. Here are just a few examples of what you can create with M1 (this is only the tip of the iceberg)!

Our goal was to create a powerful tool for everyone. The biggest challenge was to achieve adequately strong laser cutting and engraving power at an affordable price.

The CO2 laser cutters currently available on the market are powerful enough, but they easily cost up to several thousand dollars. This is because the laser tube requires special power and an additional water cooling system, making them bulky, complex, and expensive.

To save money and create value for users, we chose a diode laser instead and utilized a FAC lens to make the laser spot smaller, from 0.15x0.18mm to 0.08x0.08mm. With this Compressed Spot Technology, the same power focused on a small point achieves a higher cutting ability and narrow cutting edge, making it possible for a 5W laser module to cut through 4mm basswood in a single pass.

Beyond all that, the Compressed Spot Technology increases the engraving precision to an ultra-fine 0.01mm.

But we didn’t stop there. In order to achieve a higher laser cutting ability for our 10W version, we put two diode lasers into one module, directing two laser beams into one spot (which upgrades the laser power from 5W to 10W), thus we created a laser that can cut through 8mm basswood in a single pass.

Powerful Enough to Cut Basswood up to 8mm in One Pass

Equipped with a 16MP ultra wide angle high resolution camera inside, xTool M1 can realize visual processing and smooth operation.

Image Extraction

xTool M1 intelligently captures images, designs, and drawings from any surface and then imports them into xTool’s graphic design software for further creative design.

Batch Processing

The AI system automatically detects the shape of the material and processes the same ones in batches at one time.

AI Auto-focus

xTool M1 initiates auto-focusing, including visual identification, material thickness setting and material recognition so you don’t have to set the cutting parameters by yourself.

Intuitive Software

Equipped with specialized software, xTool M1 allows you to work seamlessly on Windows / macOS / Android / iOS devices. With the new xTool Laserbox App, you can control M1 with your smartphone even without an internet connection.

High Security

xTool M1 has multiple safety features and has a Class I (FDA Certified) safety rating. The boxed lid design automatically filters out blue light to protect human eyes and the machine stops working immediately to avoid injury if the lid is lifted during operation.

Ventilation System

xTool M1 has a built-in exhaust fan, and you can also use your M1 near a window with the exhaust pipe to discharge smoke.

With all of the features above, you might be curious about the exact price of xTool M1.

Here's the answer.

Now, during our Kickstarter campaign, we are offering the best-ever price of xTool M1 starting from only $699. That is less than 1/5 of Glowforge's price, but still gives you about 80% of the functions of Glowforge Plus + Cricut Maker 3.

The Rotary Attachment unlocks 360° engraving for cylindrical objects from 3mm to 70mm in diameter (with the raisers provided), with which you can customize a wide range of cylindrical materials.

*If you keep raising the machine, you can engrave objects in larger diameter.

Currently, due to worldwide supply chain issues, shipping prices are heavily inflated. To ensure you get the best possible rate, we will charge the shipping fee AFTER the campaign, closer to the shipping date.

Our current estimate is that shipping will be around 10%~18% of the order price, including tax & duties for most regions. (Around 15%~25% for Australia and New Zealand)


The safety class of xTool M1 is Class I (FDA Certified). We are on track to receive FDA/FCC/CE-LVD/EMC certifications before March 2022, which are necessary for delivering our products to the US, EU and most areas in the world.

We are in the process of building an xTool Community for all of our users to learn, create, and share.

In our xTool Community, we will provide:

  1. Multiple project cases with detailed instructions including digital design files, step by step instructions, materials checklists, and parameter settings.
  2. Millions of digital design files for you to download.

Earn money by sharing our project with your friends. You can get 7% commission for every order placed!

Makeblock got its humble beginnings eight years ago. We launched our first project on Kickstarter, and thanks to the amazing Kickstarter community and our backers, we've been able to grow our business to where it is today - a company with over 300 employees...

From "one robot per child", our mission never altered. We continue to empower kids to enjoy the fun of creating.

This time around, with xTool M1, we want to bring powerful tools to everyone who enjoys doing things themselves. This first-of-its-kind machine is low-barrier, compact, and affordable.

The most important thing is not that we're presenting the world's first desktop hybrid laser & blade cutter and engraver, but that we always aimed to "WOW" our backers with our products.

We’re so grateful for all of your support along the way. Thanks for helping us bring xTool M1 to life.

What is xTool?

xTool is part of Makeblock, a world-renowned coding robot manufacturer & education solution provider. Our brand’s story started with a lot of love and a little inspiration (“How can we make it easier and safer for kids to enjoy creating?”). The brand concept of xTool was born in 2018 and we launched the first xTool LaserBox in 2019. From there, our mission has been to help people turn their creativity into reality (and have fun doing it)!

We are also proud of our industrial design and have won numerous awards.

We do not brag about ourselves but enjoy a word-of-mouth reputation.
