About this event

What is a Laser Cutter?

A laser cutter uses a computer controlled high powered laser to cut, etch or engrave a vector design out of a chosen material. It does this by either melting, burning, or vaporizing small amounts of material.

About this practice session

You will be provided with an in-person walkthrough of how to use the laser cutter by our Maker Space Coordinator or a Creative Technologist. The purpose is to ensure that you have a practical understanding of how to operate the equipment. Once our Maker Space Coordinator is satisfied that you are able to safely operate the equipment, you will be free to use it whenever you wish.
