Event description

Description

From hand drawing to laser cutting you'll learn to cut wood or plastic out with a pen!

The skillshare will start with a hand drawing. This will then be scanned or photographed into a computer where we'll translate it into 2 file types that the laser cutter will understand. With these files we can then use the laser cutter to cut your drawing out.

By the end of the session you'll:

know how to engrave a jpeg,
know how to create a vector from a scanned drawing,
know how to combine and scale and reference two kinds of cutting passes for the laser cutter
have a 75mmx75mm plywood cut out of your drawing


bring:

2 coloured pens colours and paper
some prior experience of the hackspace laser cutter
a laptop. Please have installed the free programs:
inkscape(https://inkscape.org/en/download/)
gimp(https://www.gimp.org/downloads/)
