Big Red Laser Class

$ 50.00

Description

Compared to our smaller "Little Blue" laser, the ULS-12000 "Big Red" laser cutter is a more "production" and special project oriented laser cutter. It has a larger bed, more powerful laser, and faster cutting speed to enable users to efficiently cut/etch large production runs of materials or especially large/thick materials. The Basic Laser Course is required before taking this course.

In order to use the ATX Hackerspace's ULS-12000 "Big Red" laser cutter, you must take this Big Red Laser Operation Class from a certified ATX Hackerspace instructor.  The course takes two hours, and includes a lab material fee. Once you have taken the course, you can schedule time on and operate the "Big Red" laser cutter.
