Laser Cutter tutorial
About the Laser Cutter
Laser cutters are a great tool to start learning digital fabrication elements and vector drawing skills. 2D parts cut on the laser cutters can be assembled into 3D objects and lots more! Beginners will design simple projects in no time thanks to the Ruby software available on our laser cutters' computers. The MakerSpace has two laser cutters available for reservation.
Our two Trotec Speedy 300 laser cutters have a cutting area of 29" x 17" and use vector and bitmap files for laser cutting and laser engraving respectively. These machines can cut thin materials up to 1/4" thick, or engrave in materials up to 7.75".
