:pineapple: Upcoming Dates for Laser Training :sparkles:

Thursday February 17 @ 5:30 PM
Women and Non Binary Members

Thursday February 24 @ 5:30 PM
Everyone Welcome!

Training usually runs for about 1.5- 2 hours.
Please comment in this thread if you are interested and I’ll put your name in the allotted time slot.

This training is required to be able to use the laser cutter. We will go through safety, setup, and all the things you should know to get you started on your laser cutting journey.

Due to COVID-19, this event is limited to 3 students each slot. Don’t worry if you miss this one, we will run more training in the future. Reply to this thread to save your spot.

All covid precautions will be taken where possible, masks, sanitizing all surfaces, air flow, distancing where possible, etc.

Bring a vector .dxf file or an .svg file and we can laser cut something after the training! Looking forward to meeting everyone and hearing about your ideas.

The cost of training is $30 which will go towards keeping the laser functional.

Completion of the training will grant access to the use of the laser cutter, and you must be a VHS member to use the laser cutter once trained.

You can drop cash in the donation box, e-Transfer to directors@vanhack.ca, or make a donation via PayPal on Membership - Vancouver Hack Space .

Hello! since there’s only 1 sign up (and I don’t live close) I’m going to cancel and not come in today. I’ll be posting more laser training dates, so hope to meet you later!

Usually i will run it if there are 2+ people

Gentle nudge on laser training. Is anyone able to do a session anytime in the next week or so? Thanks!

Hey Cory! I haven’t been able to get out there lately, but have contacted the other folks at the LCC so someone can train you. Apologies for the wait!
