This is an introduction class to our Fiber laser cutter, Crossbow. Jondale will lead attendees of this class as they learn the basics of fiber lasers, make a simple design, and then engrave it using Crossbow. This class is intended for members who have not yet been authorized to use Crossbow or need/want a review of its operation. Laptops will be provided for this class.
Help installing the software on your own laptop can be provided outside of class. In class we will be using Inkscape and Meerk40t on the member laptops to design for and run the laser.
