Laser Cutter Training

Learn how to use the coolest prototyping and customizing tool: 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.

We will make a beginner project, name placards out of 1/4″ plywood.

These are the kinds of things our laser can cut:

  • ¼” plywood and other thing woods

  • Clear and colored acrylics

  • Fabrics

  • EVA Foam
