Tools and Safety


3D Printers This category is a good place to create topics discussing use and maintenance of IG's 3-D Printers. It's also a good place to talk about the capabilities and use cases for 3D printers in general, or to have ongoing conversations that spawn from 3D Printer meetup nights. Shapeoko Laser Cutter This category is the best place for topics specifically concerning the general use, maintenance, and operation of the laser cutter. Other discussions that might make sense here are upgrades, laser safety, and the like.
