Introduction to Laser Cutting

Introduction to Laser Cutting is an entry level workshop open to anyone interested in learning the basics of 2D design for fabrication. Participants will be instructed on the fundamentals of designing vector based graphics and best practices for laser cutter use. Projects will be fabricated using variety of materials including vinyl, mat board, cardboard, wood, and acrylic. By the end of this workshop participants will have a working understanding of the design and fabrication process. This workshop is part of the Computational Design and Fabrication series. No prior experience is necessary.

It is recommended that participants bring a laptop running a recent version of Windows, OSX, or Linux. Groups can also be formed to share resources. inworks has a few workstations available in the event someone doesn’t have a computer.
