The Makerspace is home to the Dremel Digilab LC40 Laser Cutter.
The laser cutter uses a 40 watt laser to cut, score, and engrave materials up to 19" in width, 11" in height and 1/4" in thickness. Materials that can be used with this machine include paper, glass (etch only), leather, wood, and acrylic. View a list of commonly used and prohibited materials HERE. The Dremel Digilab software can only be accessed through it's IP address so you must connect in the Makerspace. The software accepts vector files (SVG and PDF) and image files (JPEG, PDF, PNG). Cutting files requires a vector file.
