Additional information

This series of workshops replaces the previous Glowforge 101 and Glowforge 201 offerings.  

In part 1 of this course, you will utilize the camera for focusing and scanning your own custom images, properly select materials for your project, and fabricate your first design. In part 2, you will create digital artwork for the Glowforge, and learn file formatting for production.

Note: This is a badging course for laser cutting. Only those who sign up for part 1 of this series can participate in part 2 the following week. You will be badged at the end of the part 2 workshop, and are able to reserve the Glowforge Pro for use during designated times.

You must complete Hive Safety Training before participating in this program. View The Hive's workshop schedule here.
