Learn how to use Freeside's new Laser Engraver/Cutter ( ). You'll learn how to use the software toolchains to cut or engrave vector and bitmap artwork into a variety of material. We'll cover machine setup, laser safety and more. The class will be approximately 3 hours of lecture and demonstrations.

After the class each student will then be eligible to schedule a one-on-one session with the instructor or another approved laser user to supervise and assist them with their first laser project, and receive sign-off to use the laser.

Not yet a member of Freeside? You can still take this class to learn the basics of CNC machine operation, all about how our laser works, and you may have an opportunity to operate the laser when participating in a public project in the future.

Materials: Class demonstration materials included.

Instructor: Brian Cribbs
