Laser Material Reference


We have stocked the shop with a small amount of material to test and play around with. If you are going to take on a larger project, please consider the cost of the materials used. In general, you may use as much of the plywood or the Draftboard (MDF) as you like for your projects. For any of your designs, measure a rectangle around your object to calculate the estimated material cost. Additional materials can be found on the Glowforge website:


I started my career as an RF / Antenna design engineer, but I have now spent more time in education working with digital fabrication tools and encouraging the Maker mindset.

I try to empower my students to tinker, break, and fix things in their lives with digital fabrication and electronics. I now run a center program called HackSchool in North Denver with students at STRIVE Prep Excel where we apply engineering toward solving problems in their community.
