Laser Cutter for FAMiLab hackerspace

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

A laser engraver is a cheaper solution to industrial fabrication than a full laser cutter or cnc router, and can be used to mass-produce cheap parts for MakerBots and RepRaps to precise measurements. it only takes $1600 to $1700 to afford one for our hackerspace open-to-the-public lab in Altamonte Springs.

Project location: Altamonte Springs, FL

FAMiLab is a profitless community-based art and technology collective running out of Orlando, Fl (i.e. a hackerspace). The ultimate goal of the FAMiLab is to provide a safe space where hackers, makers, and crafters can wield their imagination in any way they see fit. Think of the FAMiLab as a club for geeks! Be ye art geek, LARP geek, code geek, lab geek, or any geek in between–we would like you to join us at the lab and teach a workshop, lead a lecture, or simply work on a project while surrounded by awesome people. If you can think it, and can find the supplies, it’s fair game at the lab.
