Laser cutter classes @ NYCResistor


Feb. 7th, March, 7th, and April 4th, Bre of NYCResistor will be instructing new recruits on how to properly wield the epic power of a 35 Watt Epilog laser cutter –

In this two hour class, we’ll walk through all the steps from idea to pressing the “go” button on the laser. We’ll cover safety and basic design skills in Inkscape and you’ll learn how to do a burninate test to find out if something is laserable. After the two hours, you’ll have time to prototype something until 3pm!

After learning the basics, each student will create their own design and lasercut it on the laser! A $10 lab fee is included in the ticket price and covers 12″ x 12″ of acrylic or wood and time on the laser cutter to cut and etch it.

Sure to be a great experience for NYCers interested in the precision manufacturing capabilities of such a device – a dream tool for so many maker-centric applications (professional front panels, custom parts, etc, etc) Even if you’re not able to attend, consider getting to know the open source vector graphics software Inkscape, the recommended app for laser-cut art templates. – Fire The Lazzzor!

    Once you’ve taken the course can you rent time on the laser? :)
