We are officially opening up the laser cutter for use. For those who don’t know we have a 60W laser cutter at the space now that can cut up to 3/4″ thick wood and plexiglass (among a few other things). If you are a member of the Hive you will want to take a laser cutting class in order to operate the laser on your own. If you are not a member but want to use the laser cutter for a project that s fine as well but you need to have a certified member operate it for you.
Members will soon receive free minutes per month to use the laser cutter. Additional minutes will cost $.50 and you can buy your minutes in one hour chunks. This price is the same for non-members but your operator may request a free before hand for time and setup.
To keep track of all your minutes, buy minutes and transfer purchased minutes there is a new site!

Note: It may take a few hours for new purchased minutes to show up until the paypal functionality is 100% tied in. Free minutes are not finalized yet but student/full members will have the same amount and if you are a cornerstone member you will most likely get double those minutes.
