Laser Lab

Got questions about our laser cutter? Taken training but looking for some tips? Looking for material approvals, suggestions, or where to buy? Need design* help (general, Inkscape…)?

One of our resident laser cutter gurus and partial mad scientists will be manning the front desk this day and thus is available to answer any questions, to the best of his ability, during the day.

If you’ve taken laser training, some odds and end materials may be available to take for a spin including acrylic, leather scraps, and metal marking spray. Not enough to complete large projects, but enough to try things out with.

Note: there will not be any training this day. Please sign up for the training on the 3rd of May or schedule a private session.

* The guru is not a full proper designer and so may not be able to answer all questions about all programs (CAD, etc.) or help finish out a complicated design, but Inkscape help and how to make things work better for the laser are certainly on the table.
