Laser cutter training (Inducted Makespace Members only)

** please cancel if you can't make the session so that someone else can have your place**

If you book and don't show up and don't cancel, you get low priority for future bookings.  Please don't take up a slot that someone else could have - just cancel here on meetup if you can't make it.

Inducted Makespace (Cambridge, UK) members only please.

** please cancel if you can't make the session so that someone else can have your place**

Rant over :) here's the info:


Laser Cutter Training - what it is, how to use it, plus tips and tricks on using one of the best pieces of equipment at MakeSpace.

Before coming - you might like to download Inkscape (don't panic, it's free) and have a tinker with it. (Hot tip: set the document default units to mm and do everything in mm).

The course covers:
- Love and care of the laser cutter
- Feeding of the laser cutter (what it likes to cut, what it doesn't)
- Laser cutter behaviour - what it's good at
- Settings it likes
- Tip and tricks to get the best results
- Things never to feed it (any plastic with a "C" in the name!)
- Converting from Inkscape
- And most importantly: you'll be inducted on the Laser Cutter.

This session is run by Mat Cook.

If this session fills up, please tell meetup that you want a spot, and it will email to offer you a cancellation (there are usually a couple). 

And please do cancel if you can't make it so that someone else can have your place.
