BTW laser time available
« on: February 18, 2014, 05:08:52 PM »
FYI, people are still welcome to use the laser over here at Sunshine Labs until FamiLAB's arrives. It's complimentary for FamiLAB members, we just ask that people schedule time on the website.  Then you know it'll be open when you arrive, could save you a trip.


http://www.sunshinelabs.com Click the yellow button, pick laser, and a time, and ignore the fee comment (new site doesn't take payment right now anyway).


Location: Unit #269 (same building as FamiLAB, but on the other side).
Note: To improve mood, administer chocolate.

Hi Brooks,


That is very nice of you.  I would like to take advantage of this offer.


A -- What is the learning curve to use your laser?
B -- Should I schedule some mess around time to learn to use it?


Thanks

If you already know how to use CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator the learning curve is negligible. If you're importing from inkscape a file will need a few tweaks. 30 min is a good amount of time to schedule for training.

Also, once you're trained on this machine,  you'll be in good shape for FamiLAB's new laser, very similar.

Hey Brooks -- what tweaks will an inkscape file need?  I went in last week and was able to print from Visio.  I don't have Corel or Illustrator.  I have been using inkscape at familab. 


I'm also wondering if inkscape will work with the new familab laser cutter.  hmmm
