STEAM538: Youth Laser Cutting and Etching SBU - Epilog


Learn how to use a laser cutter to cut, etch, and engrave designs in a variety of materials up to 24" x 18" and up to 3/8" thick in this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class. Work with acrylic, wood, paper, cardboard, fabric, leather, and even chocolate!

Using graphics software like Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW, cut intricate designs and engrave highly detailed images at the touch of a button. The sky is the limit with this simple and versatile tool.

Project: Etch a custom dog tag

Prerequisite(s): None!

Equipment access: Laser cutter

Minimum age: 8 years

Supervision requirements: When using the laser cutter outside of class time, 8- to 12-year-olds may only use equipment during "Supervised Maker Sessions" (classes and courses taught and supervised by TechShop Youth Education instructors). Members who are 12-15 years old must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU when using the tool outside of "Supervised Maker Sessions."
