We will be discussing and training users on the usage of Inkskape and LaserCut to produce input to the Quelab laser cutter. Toward this end we will be working through four pre-made projects. This class is primarily designed around producing vector art for use in the laser cutter. This class is primarily designed around producing vector art for use in the laser cutter.
Class meets on Saturdays, September 3 through September 24, 8 am to 10 am. Class meets in both "The Core" classroom and laser cutter room. Note that this class does not teach use of the laser cutter, so you don't need to be certified on the laser cutter at Quelab to take the class! Volunteers will be helping to cut your designs on the laser cutter at Quelab. This class is open to both Quelab members and non-members. Each attendee will be able to purchase sheets of luan plywood at $5 each
It is strongly encouraged that you have your own laptop. We have a few loaners but you will get more from the class if you set things up on your own machine.
This class is for adults, you need to be competent with the following systems:
2) Basic file and folder management on windows, mac or linux
3) Windows computers – laser cut runs on Windows.
The facilitator will be Jonathan Romero. He has many years of experience with designing and building various projects using the Inkskape program and is the Quelab laser cutter officer.
