Fab Lab: Intro to Lasercutting

Intro to Lasercutting: 3 sessions

Design with Inkscape: Thursday January 11, 6:30 - 8 pm. Whether your're creating ornaments, making your own signs, or etching a picture, the first step to using the lasercutter is being able to set up the file. Our first class will be an introduction to Inkscape, an open source tool that is one of the main platforms we use to design for the lasercutter.

Setting up the Tool: Thursday January 18, 6:30-8 pm. Set up a file and send it to cut! We'll go over speed and power settings for etching glass, cutting plywood, etching acrylic, and more. Participants will have an opportunity to experiment with different materials and go over basic safety practices that are required to use the lasercutter independently.

Lasercut Jigsaw Puzzles: Thursday January 25, 6:30-8 pm. Design a puzzle for the lasercutter using collage materials, or bring a picture and make your own! If you have an independent project that is ready to cut, we'll send it to the lasercutter and you can take it home with you.

Drop in to the sessions that look good or take all 3 to be certified on the lasercutter.
Classes are free and open to the public.
