Laser maintenance and cleaning

Long live Mongo (our 100watt laser cutter)!

To ensure the ongoing health and happiness of Mongo, we'll take him offline for maintenance for a couple of hours.  Some lucky person may be picked to test the filter-changing documentation.  Not to worry, it's really easy.  Some ability to lift 15-20 pounds is required in the disassembly and reassembly of the filtering stack.  Afterwards, you will have bragging rights and the undying love and respect from the Nova Labs community.

Note: Although it sounds involved, it isn't, and does not require the prerequisite Laser safety/usage class.  This would, in fact, be a good introduction to how some of the innards work.

    Hello Everyone. Just confirming that you are attending Laser Maintenance tomorrow, Tuesday @7:30p I will guide you through the filter replacement process.

    If you DO NOT plan to attend, please change your meetup status to NOT ATTENDING which will allow others on the wait list to attend.

    Is this the Laser 101 class required to use the laser cutter?

    August 15, 2013

    • David S.

      Austin, the Laser 101 class is held every other Wednesday. The next one is full, but it looks like there is a spot left on the first one in September. THat is the class required to use the laser.­
