How to Use the Laser Cutter
Approved and Banned Materials
The laser cutter can cut or etch a wide variety of materials. However some are not possible to cut with our current set-up, and other materials release fumes that damage humans or the laser cutter itself.
The laser can only etch some materials; it will not be able to cut through them. See the approved materials list for more.
The key thing is not to try to cut:
- Any metals
- Any materials that contain glue (such as plywood)
- Any plastics or other materials that contain chlorine
