laser cutting and etching

As I mentioned, we had to give up the 3d printer and laser cutter. Steve, Christof, Sam, and Sarah were able to get some things made before giving it back though. We all learned a great deal and I'm anxious to see things materialize as these pieces become part of future work. Thanks to those of you who took the time to play around with this technology. It helped me learn a great deal and I thank you.

Steve made some acrylic discs that will be tapped in the center.
Sam etched some blue tinted acrylic with an original image that he drew (this may get colored LED's). Also it casts a great shadow when light is shown through it.
And Christof cut some tinted acrylic hexagons that are going to be a part of his messenger bag.
