Description
Laser cutters are used to produce precise cuts and engravings with several materials based on 2D vector and raster images. The machines are commonly used for anything from industrial manufacturing to small and intricate art projects. This class will teach how to operate Technocopia’s Full Spectrum laser cutter safely and effectively. Students will learn the multi-step process of creating and preparing a simple design in Inkscape, opening (printing) it in Retina Engrave, and then operating the laser to produce the cut. We will also cover laser calibration, material use, and how to produce an engraving and cut in the same run. This tool is available for family use! Any youth between the ages of 12-17 may take this class with a participating adult. Learn more at Technocopia.org! All non-member students please fill out this one-time registration form prior to attending a class. Review our class cancellations and refund policy here.
