Getting Started with the Laser Cutter

Hi folks. I want to learn how to use a laser cutter to cut cast acrylic sheets. Can anyone help me get started in my project? Is there like, a training you do, or a lesson I can sign up for? I’m ready to become a member but I’ve sent several inquiries in several channels and no reply so far…

Hey there! I’d be happy to help you. There are some design basics to learn - to set up the file itself - as well as basics concerning the machine itself (prepping, printing the job, cleaning after you’re done, basic issues and solutions to them). I’m currently on vacation, but feel free to email me at to set up a time and day!

Hi! I’ve just joined the Generator and am looking to start working with the laser cutter. How do I get started?
