While 3D Printers and Laser cutters are both predominantly cartesian CNC machines, to upgrade a 3D printer to a laser cutter, specifically with regard to the Series 1 would be practically impossible. The relative complexity of a laser cutter would mean you would have to replace almost every single structural componant, including the frame. In addition the skill level required to do so would be very high. And lastly, it would be more affordable (and infinitely safer) to purchase a new laser cutter from an excellent vendor like Full Spectrum Laser, which is the company that made the laser cutter with which later batches of the 2013 Series 1 were cut.
