Making stuff since 2010

Laser Cutter

Edinburgh Hacklab is pleased to announce the arrival of a rather special bit of equipment, a laser cutter. So what does one do with a laser cutter? It enables high resolution (0.0254mm/1000dpi) engraving and/or cutting of a wide range of materials including Acrylic, Crystal, Bamboo, Cloth, Fabric/Denim, Fiberglass, Glass, Laminated Plastic, Leather, Marble, Plastic, Paper, Rubber, Wood, MDF, Marble, Anodized Aluminum and Coated Metal. After the initial setup was complete little time was wasted before lasering began! Training for members will be taking place over the coming days and weeks, so expect to see some great stuff being made. Enjoy the full installation process taking place in a time lapse video below.

    Love the bits in the video of everyone crowded around as the light floods out of the cutter. And the yakkity sax. Next project for someone, a sign above the cutter marked ‘do not look into the beam with your remaining eye’.
