    Bubbles are a common problem in castings. In some cases, you can ignore them. But for other applications, you might not be so lucky. You might need a transparent part which would be ruined by bubbles. Or your part’s strength might be compromised by bubbles.

    Prerequisite: Mold Making and Plastic Casting 101

    In those cases, you need special equipment to get rid of those vexing bubbles.

    This class will teach you how to use Nova Labs vacuum chamber and pressure pot together to eliminate bubbles. It will also teach you how to operate the vacuum pump.

    Recommended Clothing: The materials used in this class will permanently bond to anything they get on. It is strongly recommended you wear old work clothes and shoes you won't mind getting stained.

    Got a laser project but don’t know where to start? Too many videos on RDWorks and LightBurn?

    The sheer amount of tutorials can be overwhelming. Nova Labs is best known for its philosophy of DIT (Do It Together)... so let’s get you makers making with lasers fast! In Laser 102, we learn RDWorks and Lightburn together and how they apply to our Nova Labs CO2 Lasers in two hours or less. We use basic shapes, images, and text to learn how to prepare artwork, choose order of operations, and learn the basics of cutting and engraving with simple scalable vector graphics in RDWorks and Lighburn. Graphics Design experience is not necessary. The goal of this class is to learn how to use the CNC software in order to cut with the CO2 lasers so you can get the lasers working for you. The goal of this class is not advanced graphics and laser techniques design, which is “Laser 201 Advanced Software Techniques and Test Cards.”

    Students will test cut various materials with simple shapes. There is no “takeaway” product, but students are welcome to take away the things they make.

    What to Bring: Students may bring their own computers with LightBurn and/or RDWorks downloaded (must be done prior to class beginning). Students may bring SVG files on USB if they have a project in mind already. Students are encouraged to bring their ideas or photos for types of projects they will mainly focus on making with lasers.

    Instructor Melanie Cameron: Florist, Laser Cutter, Maker, Teacher, and Theater Geek, Ms. Cameron loves instructing and making at Nova Labs. Let’s play with fire! I mean... lasers!

    In this fun 2-day class you will learn all the techniques needed to make a beautiful and functional cutting board to use everyday, give as a gift, or just display in your kitchen as piece of art (seriously, people who have taken the class say they don't use the board because it's too pretty).

    After you take this class you will know all the steps necessary to come back and make a cutting board (or 500) on your own. 

    - If you don't want to learn the steps, or use the tools, and you just want something pretty to show off, look for our "simple project" class coming later. 

    - If you are a cutting board snob, and think the only cutting boards should be end-grain, look for the end-grain class coming in early 2023.

    Day 1  - Saturday, Jan 21st at 10:30 am

    You will see how to prep your materials using the Jointer, planer, and table saw. Once the wood is cut to size. At the end of this 2-3 hour session you will glue up the board.

    Day 2 - Saturday, Jan 28th at 1:00 pm

    You will remove the board from the clamps and clean it up on the jointer and planer. We will route the edges and apply finish. 

    No sign-off needed to take this class.
