Date: Saturday, March 4th. 12pm class, 4pm class
Class Size Limit: 6 per class
Cost: $0, minus laser minutes
This class is designed to train you on how to operate both the small and large laser safely and effectively. I will also show how to use the laser cutting software (Easycut 5.3) and a design program (Inkscape), as well as share some tricks i've learned about them through my experience. After completing this class, you should know how to:
- Activate the ventilation system
- Prep the laser
- Prep your material
- Navigate the software like a champ
- Fire the "laser"
- How to log your laser minutes
Members may bring their own wood material to be used, or they can use scrap materials found in the fablab. Bring in your designs, and I will show how to cut them out.
Brad Walsh, our new CNC warden, recently fixed up the mill and offered to run a class on Saturday January 9th from 1 to 3pm. Please RSVP here.
"This would be basic safe operation and a walk through of how to load a tool and make some chips." -Brad
You can check the wiki page for the mill for information regarding the repair process it went through, manuals, and other mill related information.
