Getting Trained

Our current laser cutter works differently than the prior cutter, so previous training is not accepted.  Please check the schedule of events under What's Going On? to see if there is an upcoming class.  If there is not, you can schedule a 1/2 hour training session under Get Checked Out on a Machine



WorkFlow

Follow these general steps to move from idea to cut object:

Being Prepared

You should save time by preparing your cut program before scheduling Laser Cutter time. 

To Help with that, you can download the software (Windows only) from the Manufacturer HERE.  The file downloads as a .rar file, so you may need 7zip to unpack it.

Also, there is a version of the manual that has been translated into English by people who use that software.  An older version of the manual can be downloaded here: RDWorks Manual.pdf.

Boss Laser has also written a good manual for the software and hardware.

For help, tutorials, and useful files, visit the forums at RDWorks Labs.  There are also many videos on YouTube.
