Glowforge Laser Cutter
It's been a long time coming - but we finally have our Glowforge laser cutter! Thank you to the Hobson Booster Club and Triangle Communications for making this purchase possible. Glowforge was a crowdfunding project - Hobson Schools was one of the more than 7,000 groups and individuals who contributed to the development of this consumer focused laser cutter. It took two years to refine the design, manufacture, and ship the units.
I'm very impressed with the final product. It is fast, powerful and easy to use. We are finding lots of applications in science, math, engineering and art.
Engineering students are currently learning how to use the software, calibrating the settings for different materials, and planning projects. Through the months of February and March we will be offering demonstrations for students, community members and the press. Student's will be constructing mechanical models and creating projects to donate to the Hobson Extravaganza.
