Intro to Laser Cutting and Etching

MakerFX is home to a professional-class Epilog Legend 36EXT 50 watt laser engraver, which engraves and cuts acrylic, wood, paper, and much more. We also have the rotary tool which is great for engraving glasses or stainless steel tumblers.

During this workshop you will learn how to use this very powerful machine and see it in action. The images below are show the laser printing MakerFX keychains.

The laser can be used to cut as well as etch.  Below is a video of the laser etching a name into a glass. The rotary tool is used to etch a name around the glass.
