In this training, we will show you how to use the laser cutters (Trotec & Thunderlaser) at Happylab for your projects!

The laser cutter is a versatile machine at Happylab! Our laser cutters can cut and engrave various materials such as wood, cardboard, plexiglass, leather, fabric, and metal with a focused infrared laser beam. Additionally, there are some materials that can only be engraved, like glass.

  • Which materials you can cut and engrave with the laser cutter,
  • Understanding the settings like Speed, Power, PPI, and Z-Offset, and how to find the right parameters for your material,
