Hi Everyone! The old laser cutter at Twin Cities Maker is working hard for our members and it needs an assistant. So we are extending our capabilities by purchasing a Thunder Nova 51. The new machine will be accessible to more members and will provide better support for other departmental demands.
A laser cutter is a foundational Maker tool. It is both useful and versatile - the possibilities are endless. Members can create artwork, cut textile pattern designs, or create parts for robots! Woodworkers can even use it to create router templates and etch details in parts. Acrylic, veneer, wood, paper, or textiles - the sky's the limit!
