This course introduces students to the 80 and 100 watt Hurricane laser cutters. Students will learn the principles of cutting and engraving via intense beams of laser light. A classroom session will cover software preparation using CorelDraw and discuss materials, thicknesses, speed and applied power. This will be followed by an instructor demonstration at the machine where students will learn how to operate the laser cutters.  

Prerequisites: It is strongly recommended that students have a basic knowledge of how to create vector-based files (i.e- .ai, .eps, .dxf, .dwg, .cdr file extensions) before taking this class. If these file types are foreign to you, it is highly recommended that you attend the Intro to 2D Vector class before attending this class.

**Closed-toe shoes are a requirement**
