I'm developing and selling products made from recycled bicycle parts and am interested in the potential use of the laser cutter and/or vinyl cutter to cut bike tubes and/or tires into jewelry and other products. I'm also interested in finding out about welding or soldering of bike chains and other parts.
I understand for the laser cutter I would need to develop designs in Illustrator or other programs that I don't currently have installed. I'm interested in whether SketchUp would be usable for that or what other low cost programs could be used. I'm also curious about the potential to design cargo bicycles using the software at the lab, but that is a longer-term goal.
Most of the things I'm working on are open-source and are already in the marketplace, and the new things I've develOped aren't much of a change. But I am interested in finding ways to brand and market my products locally.
