New Laser Cutter

Our new laser cutter from Full Spectrum Laser is Dallas Makerspace’s biggest tool purchase yet.

With its high-power 120 Watt CO2 Laser, you can cut through thick materials like 3/4″ wood and acrylic. And, you can still dial it down to effectively cut paper and cardboard. It also has a 36″x24″ cutting area which can accommodate objects as deep as 24″. That’s a full set of Printrbot parts in a single go!

As always, membership and a training class are required to operate the laser. If a class is not already on the calendar, inquire about the next class through the mailing list. There is a small fee of $1 per 10 minutes to cover the cost of consumables.

It can make more than just Raspberry Pi cases! View examples of member projects here.

    I was curious about your laser cutter I noticed it said I need a laser cutter class and a membership prior to use and I was curious of the price of both of those

    I have a need for cutting 3mm carbon steel. Would the this device be able to handle that type of material?

      Our lasers cutters would not be able to handle this. We have handheld plasma cutters that could. And we have plans to have a CNC plasma cutter up and running in the future.
