Laser Zone

  • Our new laser cutter Cyclops is set up, working, and accepting new users!
    • If you're trained on Wolverine/Bumblebee, see the Cyclops page for instructions on how to get authorized (without any in-person training required!)
    • If you're not trained on the old lasers, check with Mike for in-person training.
  • I tested out Cyclops' metal cutting mode last week, and it worked pretty great on the 0.6mm (24ga) stainless I had laying around.
    • This mode is pretty involved to set up, so it will definitely require in-person training when it's ready for people to use. It's also going to cost more to run, since pressurized O² isn't free.
