Comment: Laser cutters are cool…

Last Tuesday I went to Bower Ashton, a campus that is part of my university. I don’t usually go to this campus because my course is based at a different one. On this occasion I had booked to use the laser cutter as I needed to cut some wood and photographs into circles. Bower20130514_121251

The lady who was helping me with the laser had recently produced an impressive wooden horse that is featured in the Soutbank Arts Trail, an event that occurred over this weekend. I do not know much about how she managed to produce the horse but I assume it involved an initial design, transferring this design into illustrator in order to add engraving and cut marks, spray paint and screws to assemble it. A very long and technical process which deserves acknowledgement.

I think it looks very impressive and I am gutted I couldn’t go and see it amongst all the other pieces this weekend.


Cutting my circles took a while so I decided to take some photographs of the wonderful things different students have produced using this laser cutter.
