Laser Cutting

The Student Technology Center is equipped with a Glowforge Pro Laser Cutter / Engraver for use by students, faculty, and staff!

How can I laser engrave at the STC?

Everyone with a Western ID is allotted a 4" by 4" square of medium maple plywood per quarter to engrave or cut however they want.  The size is perfect to create a little custom puzzle, a personalized name tag, or even a matching coaster for your favorite mug!  In order to access your quarterly quota, you must complete our short Glowforge Certification workshop.  In this workshop, you will learn the basics of how the laser cutter works
