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.

    I live in SE Dallas area and interested in a co2 laser…although not from Full Spectrum. However,
    I’d like to process some materials for about a month to get an idea of what it can and cant do. Do you offer a short membership option like 1 or 2 months?

    Thanks.

      Hi Jeff,

      Membership autodrafts from month to month but there is no cancellation fee. Cancel at any time. With that being said, we encourage our members to think of our space as a community they belong to and not a place to just use for a couple months. Your best bet to get a feel for what we offer and expect is to come into one of our weekly Thursday night Tour nights. Starts every Thursday at 7 with tours starting every 10 minutes or so.
