The 60W Laser cutter is up and running at the lab finally. And already we are reaping the benefits of having one. Decreased fabrication time and the ability to say we have a cnc with a freakin’ laser. So far we have cut the support structure for a quadracopter and also some enclosures, also some very tasteful renderings have been etched. The more the merrier so if you want to get in on the laser cuttery goodness then just come on down and you can get in on using it to fabricate your designs. Classes and laser cutter get together nights are already being scheduled. The first get together will be on July 11th (7-9pm) and the first laser cutter class will be free for members and will be on Saturday July 21st (11am-1pm). See you all at the lab!
