LASER CUTTING

A laser cutter enables you to cut out a complex shape with maximum precision. 

If you are able to generate 2d files like .dfx or .ai, you are one workshop away to be able to cut any shape.

LASER ENGRAVING

By controlling the power of the laser, it is possible to just mark the surface of the material. 

Engraving text or images in materials like plexiglass can increase the quality of your projects.

JOINING TECHNIQUES

By combining different panels, a 2D sheet of material can be assembled into a 3 dimensional object. 

An understanding of tolerances and joining techniques is necessary. Therefore these techniques are covered in the advanced workshops.
