About Laser This! Laser That!

Spend a week working with the laser engraver as a serious design tool. Laser This! and Laser That! provide participants with dedicated time for working on impressive creations, like jewelry, custom drinking glasses, press-fit box creations, fancy business cards, wooden (living) hinges, stamps, 123D Make 3D objects and more. This year we will be able to make use of the larger 32×18 Universal Systems Laser.

Learning Process and Outcomes

Last year it included the following:

  • Day 1: artistic expression with color-matching, multiple exposure and organic form
  • Day 2: exploring new mediums with paper, cylindrical objects, metals, fabrics, food and quark
  • Day 3-4: engineering applications via prototyping with press-fit enclosures

Take-Home Creations

This depends entirely on what participants decide to work on.
