Laser Cutter Workshop
This is an overview class and a hands-on workshop with our laser cutter, Goldfinger. Jondale will lead attendees of this class as they learn the basics of laser cutting and how to safely operate the laser cutter in our space. This class is intended for members who have not yet been authorized to use Goldfinger or need/want a review of its operation.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop and to pre-install Inkscape and the KM-LASER bundle extensions for it. If you do not have access to a laptop, one will be provided for use during class. If you need help installing Inkscape or the extensions, you may use one of the provided laptops and help installing the software will be available after class. Inkscape can be downloaded here and the KM-LASER bundle here.
There will be a fee for this class of $10 for current Knox Makers members. This class is only open to current, paying Knox Makers members. It will not be open to the public. There will be a 5 person maximum for this class.
