About the Programme

Begin your laser cutting journey with this introductory, hands-on learning session that teaches you how to use our laser cutters at MakeIT. Laser Cutters enable makers to shape and cut flat materials such as wood into intricate designs, using software tools to do so.

IMPORTANT: This session is compulsory to attend if you would like to reserve and use the Laser Cutters at MakeIT.

This workshop will teach you how to:

  • Identify what digital cutting is and how laser cutting can be used to build projects.
  • Identify the components of the Lionsforge Craftlaser and the materials usable by it.
  • Understand the safety features and potential hazards of the Craftlaser and how to operate it safely.
  • Create two simple projects using Inkscape and export those designs to be cut by the Craftlaser.

This session is suitable for beginners. You are encouraged to signup for a TinkerCAD account before attending the session: https://www.tinkercad.com/join

The age requirement for participants is 15+
