The Full Spectrum Hobby laser is a small, basic laser cutter and engraver, for use on smaller projects. it is the older of our two lasers, and may make somewhat rougher cuts than our flagship P48-36, but it is more than capable! plus, it is much simpler to work with, due to its smaller size.
Pricing and Quotas
The Hobby Laser Cutter is free to use, if you supply your own material. We do provide some materials in the shop for use at a low cost, see our Pricelist for more details. The P48-36 does not use a queue, and is first-come first-serve. If you have a part to cut, follow the instructions on preparing your file, and ask one of our lab managers to run it for you. Operating the Lasercutter is not a simple process, and you must be trained to use it on your own (see our Tools and Equipment Policies for information on how to get full-time access).
