Laser Cutting 1: Hands on Machine Training
(class 1 of 2)

Class Overview

In this class, art and technology merge as we show you how to create your own unique piece of art using our CO2 lasers. You will learn how to load the files you create into our laser cutter, set up the machine and create products of your own design. This is the first of 2 classes you will need to complete to be certified to use our machine. Be sure to follow up with Laser Cutting 2 to learn etching/scanning and higher level techniques and tips to make even cooler stuff!

Since laser cutting is one of our most popular classes we suggest you RSVP before either session. After attending both classes you will be well versed in using the laser cutters on your own (but we are still here to help if needed)!

Class Cost

  • $45 for non-members
  • $25 for monthly members (you do not need to be a member to attend our classes, however, members do get discounts!) Learn about membership


  • None.

Age Requirement

  • 18 and up (exceptions can be made for ages 15-17 that are interested, and 12+ are ok if they attend with a parent)

Whats Next After I Take This Class:

We suggest you take Laser Cutting 2 to learn higher level laser cutting techniques. And be sure to visit HexLab during open hours as a member to practice and our staff can help answer any questions!
