Clean Up:

Prior to starting a job, it is the user's responsibility to inspect both the mirror and the lens of the laser cutter. If dirty, please make sure to clean as needed. Only use the supplies (Q-tips, lens paper, and solution) near the laser cutter. All of this will be covered in the training session.

What to Avoid:

  • Do not put pvc in the laser cutter under any circumstances. It creates poisonous gas and will ruin the machine.

  • Lending someone not trained on this machine your credentials will result in removal from the ability to use the machine.
