Basic Training: Laser Cutter
This training session will give you access to the basics of using the laser cutter. While it is not required to book this training session online, doing so will ensure that you get a comprehensive experience. We book all training sessions for one half hour: actual time will vary, depending on your skill level. You must be a facility member to book this session.
You need to be sure you have a vector .AI file and materials no bigger than 12″x 18″ or thicker than 3/16″ when you are working with this machine. If you do not know how to make a Vector file you can sign up for Adobe Illustrator training and we can teach you. If you just do not have Illustrator, Inkscape is free and you can save as a .SVG file and change to .AI on our lobby computers. You can either come in with something ready to cut or try one of our test projects to learn what you need to know to run the laser.
For training sessions outside of available hours, speak to somebody at the front desk.
