HeatSync Labs has an 80 Watt Laser Cutter and 60 Watt Laser Cutter. You must be certified to use the laser cutter on your own. The Laser Certification will be scheduled on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 11am - 2pm. Check the calendar for details.

As you have questions using the laser please consider using our Laser FAQ page. By having a single searchable page things will be easier for everyone.

If there are problems that cause the laser not to be safe to use; Discuss with whoever is hosting open hours. Post a sign on the laser if it's out of order. Then post on Slack in the laser channel about the problem.

The Laser Category page lists all articles on our wiki about the laser cutters. Some may be outdated.


There are plenty of safety and other considerations covered in our training class. Here are some highlights.

  • Always stay in the area when your job is running in case you need to hit the E-Stop or respond to a problem or fire
  • Clean up after your job
  • Log your work when you are done
  • Empty the trash out in the dumpster when it is 3/4 full
  • Take turns with others
  • Be courteous of volunteers hosting and be cleaned up by the end of open hours
