Ticket Options



You may also pay in person before the date of the class.
Either call or check the calendar to see if we are here.

The Laser Cutter class at the Jackson Makerspace will show you the basics of running the laser cutter to cut out a wood coin.

Topics may include:

  • How does it work?
  • What can we do with it?
  • Connecting it and turning it on
  • Scan artwork
  • Auto focus the laser
  • Configure Settings

No need to bring anything. We will provide everything needed.

HOWEVER if you want to bring in a custom graphic please bring a JPG or Adobe Illustrator file (ai).

When you register for the class you will receive an email with a wood coin template so you can also freehand sketch a graphic.

No previous programming experience needed.
No previous electronics experience needed.

Here is a good overview of a laser cutter – NOTE not the same model as the Jackson Makerspace laser cutter!
