The AARR team recently procured several new tools. One of these is a 3D laser printer built by Glowforge. I have decided I could utilize this new equipment for my service learning project with Ojia Valley Land Conservancy (OVLC).

The Glowforge uses a 45-watt CO2 laser to engrave or cut a number of different materials. I have begun to compile a database of settings to help other students. This will be a list that can be referenced when a student needs to cut or engrave a specific material. The need for this is due to the different power and speed settings of the printer.

I hope to use this in the future to build acrylic brackets to hold scaling lasers for our BlueROV2.
