I have a project I am looking to get laser cut. Will someone be there to intro that? I have never done it before, but I have my vector graphics ready.

Hey Daniel, we should have someone there to help you. I have basic knowledge of how to use the laser cutter, and Aakin will be there too. He's a bit more experienced than I am. What material are you planning on cutting?
Something simple and thin like luan. I can bring some of that or some thicker birch ply. What is the maximum size for the machine bed?
Hi Daniel, I can definitely help you step through using the laser cutter, as can otehrs who will be there. The bed can hold material up to 24"x18" in size, though there is roughly a 1/4" to 1/2" inch uncuttable zone on the side. So designing for a cut area of less than 23" x 17" should be safe.
