Laser show-and-tell

Please come even if you have nothing to talk about or share, so we can meet you, and know what the group is interested in!

Please post your areas of interested and expertise!

Steve will be bringing examples of engraving on leather, cork and wood.  Could use some help learning about plastic and glass.

    Rather then tell you which issue the article on making wooden joints, here is the actual article from MAKE Magazine: http://makezine.com/projects/make-33/cnc-panel-joinery-2/

    Here is the URL for BoxMaker, an online tool to make a pattern for a 6 sided box. You can modify the pattern, to make two piece box pattern, as I demoed at the meeting: http://boxmaker.rahulbotics.com

    Thanks to everyone for the good words. This is the first time gathering, for what hopefully will be regular meetings. During the next few days, I will be posting some of the resources here, as well as on our Wiki page. Anyone have suggestions for what we could do for next time?

    Steve, great meeting, thanks. Appreciate you explaining how the engraving works with vector objects within vector objects. Also appreciate you explaining the possibilities (and limitations) of working with leather.

    Persoanlly disappointed to find I won't be able to use the laser to cut my specific leather, if it is chrome-tanned.

    I just started attending NOVA labs meetups, and took the Laser 101 class last week. I'm interested in seeing what others are doing and getting some inspiration for my future projects.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
