Laser cutter training

Hello there, my name is Blanca and I am working in an art project that involves making geometric shapes in acrylic. I have experience in laser cutting. Would it be possible to use the laser cutter? Would any of the trainers be willing to help me out? Thanks a lot!

There is a training this weekend on Sunday but they are trying to determine what time it will be. Between 1pm and 5pm, before during or after the Ability Hacks Meetup.

They are still deciding - I will check in tomorrow then let you know what they say.

I was just talking with a friend about this, will there be registration on eventbrite or is there some other way to get a spot?

Thanks a lot David!

On a related note, I completed the laser training but it was months ago and I have not been back to use the laser cutter since then. Should I just do the training again? Or hope that there is someone around that can help refresh me if I’d like to try to cut something? I don’t remember much from it and I lost the notes I took

I asked but didn’t hear back about the training on Sunday. I’m going to be teaching so I also hope to find out what time soon :slight_smile: Will post the time as soon as I know (gonna be between 1pm and 5pm) … I’d say just show up and we will find a way to get you and your friend trained.

That sounds great David, thanks for that. I will be there around 1:30 or any time you suggest :smiley:

OK well coincidentally I haven’t heard back from my friend either so it’s possible that neither of us will be able to make it this time around. I’ll try but we’ll see how things shake out

I made a Meetup event for people to RSVP. If it somehow fills up before you snag a spot, y’all should just show up anyways. I feel like at least half of people who sign up for stuff last minute don’t show up. Laser Cutter Safety Training | Meetup

@pagrus No need to be retrained. Just ask around when you get to the space if you need help. :slight_smile:

Happy lasering, everyone!

I was on the way and got a flat tire. I’m now waiting for a Lyft and will get there about 15 minutes late. Sorry! Hope it all works out somehow !

Almost there, sorry I am late

OK thanks! I will do that

Hi David and Ruth,
I am a new member of the noisebridge community and I missed your laser training class today! I have a urgent project I need to use the co2 laser for and wondering if you or anyone in the community would be willing and able to host a quick class this week? I will make extra donations since it would be a smaller group.
I have experience running a model shop and have ran other laser cutters and cnc equipment so it will be a quick class!
Please let me know and what other resources I could contact for help.

Thanks!
Justin

Hi Justin are you available tomorrow evening? I have a gig in the Mission tomorrow afternoon. Not sure how long it will take but could tentatively meet you at 6:30 -7:30pmish updating you tomorrow as I figure out my timeframe.
