 +=====  What is it?  =====
 +
 +A class on how to use the laser cutter at NSL to make fun toys, engravings, and general shenanigans. We'll cover using [[http://www.inkscape.org|Inkscape]] to make 2D vector art which can be CNCd by the laser cutter. The Inkscape portion of the class is 100% transferrable to the vinyl cutter at NSL, too.
 +
 +For those who want to get ahead of the class: [[How to laser]]
 +
 +Class will be taught by [[User:Datagram|Datagram]]. Yeah, that asshole.
 +
 +=====  When is it?  =====
 +
 +Friday, April 26, 2013 @ 20:30.
 +
 +=====  What do I need to bring?  =====
 +
 +Yourself, a laptop with Inkscape installed, and a sheet of acrylic to cut. If you don't want to get a sheet of acrylic beforehand DG will be selling some; proceeds go to NSL. (They will probably cost $10-15)
 +
 +<font color="red">Install Inkscape BEFORE THE CLASS</font>. We are not waiting for you. Inkscape is free and works on all modern operating systems (BeOS not supported, sorry Skroo).
 +
 +=====  Does it cost money?  =====
 +
 +The class is FREE, but it would be awesome if you could donate $20 to Null Space Labs for more food, drinks, and toys. The sexy kind. Continued use of the laser cutter at NSL requires a NSL membership.
 +
 +=====  How can I help?  =====
 +
 +The class is self-sufficient but NSL can use the following:
 +
 +  *  Acrylic sheets (not lexan/polycarbinate) $4-12 at home depot 
 +  *  &lt;5mm ply or mdf sheets 
 +  *  Materials rack 
 +  *  Compact computer stand
