Our makerspace Laser Cutter uses a computer guided laser to cut and/or etch glass, stone, leather, wood and acrylic (never vinyl, PVC, polycarbonate or luan). Laser cutting works by directing, through optics, the output of a high-power laser, which burns or vaporizes parts of the material leaving an etched image and/or an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Our makerspace laser cutter has a 60 watt output and a 28 x 18 inch work space.
