80 Watt Laser Cutter Certification
Learn to operate our 80 watt laser cutter. Learn to import DXF files and operate the Rabbit QX[masked] (http://www.rabbitlaserusa.com/laser_QX1290.html) 80W laser cutter. This certification is required before you can operate the laser on your own. We'll be covering software, file types, machine components, and safety. Materials suited for our laser cutter include acrylic plastic, cardboard, leather, and thin woods. This certification class covers only the operation of the laser cutter, not how to create the design files for cutting. Files need to be in a DXF vector format such as those created by Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, or CAD software. NOTE: Please bring your RFID fob with you to class. The instructor will grant you access to the laser cutter at the end of the class. You will need a RFID fob to gain access to the laser cutter after the class. This class is $25 to TinkerMill members, $50 for non-members. You must be a current TM member to use our laser cutter outside of class. ..................................................................................................................

What we're about

Everyone wants a place where you can find the tools you need and, maybe, a group of people that know how to do interesting stuff and have amazing madskills that you can collaborate with to create new and wonderful things?

Yea... us too.

We want to put together a place like that in Longmont. This would be a place where art, technology, tools, teaching and collaboration come together into a true creative community.

What's often been called a Hackerspace or Makerspace in other cities with similar spaces.

Imagine one place with all the tools you need, or might need to really let loose your innovative side. Tools like work stations with 3D printers, Lasercuters, textile tools like computer driven embroidery machines, recording studio and video editing bay equipment, woodworking tools, soldering stations, electronics and robotic stations, welding equipment, a private cloud system (think: your own personal datacenter) and a classroom full of people all week long learning and teaching subjects ranging from synthetic biology to autonomous drones to arduino robotics programming to good costume design techniques.

Maybe even a class where your kids can learn to program.

If you're interested in helping to create a space like this, come join us and let's see what we can create together.

DEFINITIONS: HACKER: A hacker is a person who enjoys exploring the limits of what is possible, in a spirit of playful cleverness.

HACKERSPACE / MAKERSPACE: It is a community-operated physical space where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science and/or art, can meet, socialize and/or collaborate. Hackerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources, tools and knowledge to build and make things.
