Laser Cutting – 2021-03-20

Update on the 20th of March 2021

Four people showed up. It was great fun! Special thanks go to Nico for the link to the box generator:

We cut one of the boxes into plywood, then added the name of Andrew’s son and a photo of the two, processed with Gimp’s newsprint filter.



Learn what you can do with a CO2 laser cutter. No prior knowledge required!

If you like, you can bring your own design and your own material, but note: The machine is not the fastest, so we probably cannot cut all designs. Materials that work well include cardboard, acrylic, and wood. The exception is plywood laminated with dark glue. It can not be cut! Glass can be engraved but not cut.


Dim Sum Labs is a hacker space. Asides from the laser cutter, there are 3D printers, manual mills, a manual lathe, various power tools, and various tools for prototyping electronics. The CNC mill needs fixing.
