Main Library · MakerSpace · Full Spectrum Laser Cutter and Engraver

The Basics

Laser-cut and engrave glass, acrylic, or wood to create one-of-a-kind gifts; etch photos onto different mediums; create complex 3D objects like snowflakes; and more.

What You'll Need

Use of the laser cutter and engraver is free. A staff member is required to prepare the machine for you.

We have acrylic and wood plaques available to purchase. You may bring a piece of material to cut or engrave; however, you must provide a receipt or tag that states what the item is made of. Material approval is up to the discretion of the MakerSpace staff.
