Rabbit Laser

Donated by Dr. Peter R. Johnson and Joanne Johnson, with support from the Ayers Foundation

Our machine is the Rabbit Laser RL-80-1290 model. The cutting bed is 47.2″ x 35.4″. The laser can cut and engrave wood, bamboo, paper, leather, wool felt, natural fabrics, and acrylic up to 1/4″. It can also engrave marble, glass, crystal, and ceramic. It is highly accurate, with location precision of less than 0.01mm.

Laser Certification Workshops are offered on the third Thursday of every month from 6pm-9pm.  Once you have taken the workshop, you will be certified to rent time on the Rabbit Laser.

I want to take a certification workshop!

I am certified and would like to rent time!
