Event description
An introduction to CO2 Laser Cutting and Engraving

About this event

Lasers are incredible machines. They are accurate, fast, versatile and provide the precision you need to bring a professional design to life.

Lasers work on a variety of materials including wood, acrylic, plexiglas, foam, leather and so much more. Whether you want to cut accurate pieces or add a custom logo to a finished product, the lasers are hard to beat.

The course starts off with an introduction to RD Works software, which allows you to dial in the settings such as the power and speed of the laser. The course then shifts to the machine operations where you'll set up your material and start cutting!
