In this class you will learn the basics of laser cutting, including how the machine works, usable materials, file types for laser cutting and get hands-on time with the laser cutting machine!

This class will allow you to comfortably create a file, prepare and upload the file to the machine and operate the machine! Yes, without any prior knowledge you can learn to use laser cutters in this 2 hour step-by-step class.

Whats Next After I Take This Class:

Take a look at the Project Ideas shown below and create one of them during a free assisted practice session or during open hours. This helps you practice the steps learned during class and feel more comfortable using the machine.

After you take this intro class we encourage you to come in for a free assisted practice session. Make sure to set a reminder for one of our assisted practice sessions: Sundays from 12:30 pm to 5 pm or Wednesdays from 6 pm to 9 pm. If you can’t make one of these weekly practice sessions we suggest you visit HexLab during open hours to practice and our staff can help answer any questions!

Hope to see you all soon!
