Public Class – Laser Cutting and Etching 101

Laser Cutter

Public Class
i3Detroit is dedicated to bringing DIY skills to the Detroit Metro community. One of the ways we do this is by holding classes specifically designed for the public.
Have you heard about laser cutters and wonder what they do?  This class will show you how to use a large 150 watt laser cutter to cut and etch acrylic plexiglass.
The course will deal with the concept of line cutting and area etching,  how to load a drawing into the laser cutter workstation, and how to move the design into the laser cutter and do final cutting and etching.
Each student will get to cut and etch their own small jewelry box from designs provided.  Students will take this box home with them.
