Laser Cutting at Hull Makerspace

I spent a very pleasant afternoon at Hull Makerspace laser cutting last week while the car was being MOT’d. I wanted to cut some chassis parts for the air quality sensor. I turned up with some files and my lovely Surface Go and set to it. By the end of the day I’d got exactly what I want and even been able to use the cutter myself.

Laser cutting panels is much, much faster than 3D printing them, and I think that the new design (you can see it on the right, looks really classy in smoked perspex. It will end up hidden in a box on a lamppost somewhere, but at least I’ll know the insides look nice.

They were busy giving help on programming and making stuff and there was a lovely buzz about the place. If you are interested in making stuff you should get down there and take a look around.
