How Can I Use the Laser Cutter?

The lab has some materials available for purchase. Contact lab staff for more information.
We cannot cut or etch PVC, vinyl, and metal. Learn more about material compatibility.
We recommend that you only bring replaceable items to use with the laser cutter. Avoid bringing antiques, heirlooms or anything else of high monetary or sentimental value.
Depth of cut is up to 1/4"-depending on the material.
