Hacksburg will be hosting a laser cutter class at the space this Saturday. This class offers attendees a tutorial on using the Hacksburg 80W CO2 Laser Cutter.

Location: 2200 Kraft Drive, Suite 1475

Cost: Free for members; recommended $5 donation for non-members.

This event and the laser cutter are made possible due to generous support from Rackspace.

Meeting and Work Session Tonight

Hello everyone! We’re having a general meeting tonight at 7:30 PM at the space. We’ll be discussing the upcoming plasma sword classes and contest, hearing about laser cutter training, and sharing ideas for World Create Day. If you have thoughts about a World Create Day project, please bring them tonight!

As always, these meetings are free and open to the public at large, where you can get tours of the space and its equipment, ask questions about the space, see what business we conduct, and so forth. If you were curious about Hacksburg but didn’t know where to start, tonight’s the night to stop by!
