This short induction will introduce you to the world of lasercutting and will allow you to come and use our lasercutters at your convenience.
Lasercutting is an incredible useful tool for cutting a range of materials and making quick models and prototypes. Whilst lasercutters cut flat sheet material these can be layered or slotted together to produce quick 3D models to begin realising your ideas. Using one is a very handy skill to have and the applications are huge! Check out our laser cutters on our facilities listing to see their capabilities.
