Laser cutters are used to produce precise cuts and engravings with several materials based on 2D vector and raster images. The machines are commonly used for anything from industrial manufacturing to small and intricate art projects. This class will teach how to operate Technocopia’s Full Spectrum laser cutter safely and effectively. Students will learn how to run cuts on the Full Spectrum using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave software, and learn how to properly prepare files and the laser itself to produce precise and beautiful cuts.
