About the event

Come learn how to use the laser cutter to create your own custom tiles! You will learn all the basics of how to use the software to operate the laser, all the steps to operate the machine, and what websites you can to go in the future to find your own laser cutter projects. At the end of this class you will know how to safely operate Mixxer's CO2 laser and create a weatherproof ceramic tile etched in titanium.

If you have a design that you would like to test out in our demonstration, please bring your own flash drive within one of these image formats: DXF, JPEG, or PNG. If you have any questions email

Space is limited so that you get lots of one-on-one instruction.
