Event description

Description

Lasers! They transmit information in fiber optics, put on pretty light shows, allow you to direct attention and play with your cat, but they can also help make and create! Meet the Glowforge: a table/counter-top sized device that now brings laser cutting into the home and other places previously thought too small or otherwise inaccessible for such technology. Where a 3D printer is an additive technology, laser cutting & engraving is a subtractive technology, and in many cases much faster than 3D printing. Get to see first hand a Glowforge in action, learn the difference between bitmaps and vectors, and create a design that may be selected to be cut during the session.
