Learn how to use the best prototyping tool next to the 3D printer: the Laser Cutter!

In this class we will cover the operation of our 30 watt CO2 laser cutter and how to design and prepare files for cutting. Our software is VCarve Pro for preparing designs for cutting, which you can download a trial of on their website here to try and get a feel for it.
