About this Event
You may have done what I did - took the basics class, but didn't get around to using the lasers, and when I wanted to use them, I'd forgotten where to start. Or maybe you just want some backup on your first go at using the lasers. This class will get you started with hands on experience.
This class is a hands on version of the material that was covered in the Laser 101 - Thunder Basics class. There's no classroom time in this one. Instead, you’ll use the RDWords software to customize an existing design by inserting your name...or someone’s name...or a word...you get the idea, right? You’ll cut and etch the design into 1/8” birch plywood (keychain size, not hang on the wall size) and take that home.
We'll have no more than 6 students In the class. I'll walk through the software use one time, then I'll do the hardware part (run through the safety checklist, load the material onto the bed, set the focus) and then run the job. After that, one student does the software, and another student does the hardware. This continues round robin style until everyone has had a turn, and have also watched it done several times Then they switch By the end of the class, everyone has done the software and hardware tasks, and have also seen it being done several times. It really sinks in.
