About this Event
Everyone knows lasers are cool, so you took the Laser 101 Thunder Basics class. Now that you won't set the building on fire, what are you going to make? How are you going to design that cool first project? Do you really know how to use the laser? What material should you use? The questions go on and on.
That's where this class comes in. I'll demo using Inkscape to design custom holiday snowflake ornaments. Once we have a good vector drawing, we'll talk about good materials to use for your first laser projects. Then we can melt snowflakes with Thunder!!!
1. Inkscape demo - 30ish minutes (Bring your laptop if you want to follow along)
2. Prepare vector image(s)
3. Setup RDWorks
4. Prep material and laser
5. Cut a snowflake.
We will spend the first 30 minutes in the classroom, so bring your laptop with Inkscape if you'd like to follow along or make your own design. After the design is ready, we'll move to Donner for the laser work.
Everyone will work with the Thunder laser to cut out a snowflake.
I'll be around for Inkscape/Laser Q&A after the class.
