RAFT Workshop – Laser Engraving Introductory Course
January 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm PST$85.00
Laser engravers, also known as laser cutters, help to create many customized items by using laser technology to etch, engrave, and cut through a wide variety of materials. For example, laser engravers can mark, engrave, and cut woods, fabrics, paper products, metals, and even glass! Laser engravers can create teaching tools, puzzles, graphic designs, and other useful items that would otherwise be expensive to procure. This beginning course gives participants the knowledge and practice required to safely operate the machine on their own and provides an understanding of the different pieces of hardware and basic design fundamentals through hands-on experience. Participants will learn to clean, calibrate, and configure the machine for different tasks and materials and also learn to troubleshoot common issues that can occur during use. RAFT members who complete this workshop will be able to reserve the machine for additional practice and/or working on projects. Click the button below to access the workshop sign-up page.
