Inventors. Hackers. Artists. DIY-ers. No matter what you call this emerging group of enthusiasts, they all have one thing in common: they make. From one-person basement operations to growing makerspaces and FabLabs, makers the world over are harnessing exciting technology and tools to bring their ideas to life.

Because of their versatility, precision, and speed, laser cutters have become one of the most highly-sought after tools in the maker community. This powerful technology allows users to produce physical items directly from digital design files, even if they don’t have a background in traditional manufacturing methods.

What can lasers do?

  • Cutting gears, gaskets, and other parts from all types of materials
  • Cutting components for 3D modeling
  • Prototyping
  • Branding
  • …and lots more.

But don’t take our word for it. Hear it from the makers themselves.

Join us for Laser Engraving and the Maker Market. We’ve gathered designers, makers, and other industry experts to present an interactive panel discussion showcasing exactly how lasers are being implemented and used in the maker movement.
Whether you’re an avid laser user or just getting started, this is an excellent opportunity to learn how you can use laser technology to turn your designs and ideas into real-world products.
