Team laser works on the laser; as the laser always works perfectly, we do absolutely nothing (they say while lying through their teeth)

If something goes wrong with the laser, we probably already know about it

Common laser issues

There are many common issues with the laser; some of them are being worked on

  • Weak cutting in [spot] - This is due to mirror alignment, which will be re done whenever someone cabible is avaliable
  • Controller crashin - Known feature, is being worked on (see upgrades section)
  • Card reader not responding - Turn off ALL the switches (on the wall and on the laser), wait ~5 mins, then turn everything back on


The laser cutter is eversoslightly problemattic; and upgrades are in progress to fix numerous issues

Mirror upgrade

Gazz has been working on upgrading the laser cutter mirrors using a kit; currently only one of the mirrors is installed; but is fully aligned

Controller upgrade
