In many ways the new laser is much like the original.   The materials it will cut are the same, the laser software is the same, and preparing images is the same.   The main differences are the "on switches", the size, and the focus.   

The Laser Guide has been updated with some of the new information.    Check it out here:   https://archreactor.org/project/laser-cutter-guide

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
