2. Take the short quiz. Feel free to take it until you get 100%.
3. Please sign up at the library front desk for a practice session. We will show you how to use the machine and design in Coreldraw or Adobe Illustrator. You can engrave (raster) photographs with backgrounds removed, clipart and text. You can cut out (vector) shapes and clipart outlines.
4. Once you can confidently run the machine, we will "certify" you. This means you can use the checklist to safely and independently run the machine.
5. You can now use the laser "independently." Our current "Independent times" are Tuesdays 12-5pm. Note that you still have to have trained staff with you since this machine requires more safety procedures so sign up ahead of time. Happy engraving!
