Illustrator for Laser Cutting
Partnership: DukeCreate & Co-Lab Roots
About the Workshop
You’ve visited the Co-Lab and you’ve been dying to use those awesome laser cutters. There is one problem though… you don’t really know how, or maybe, you just don’t know how to use Illustrator. Whether you’ve never touched the software or the laser cutters this class is a good starting point. In this class you will learn the basic use of Illustrator in regards to laser cutting while making a fun and easy project you will be able to take home with you. You will also be walked through the process of using the laser cutters in the lab so that next time you come by, you will know exactly what to do and how! You must have Adobe Illustrator installed on your laptop to follow this class.
Note: Illustrator must be installed prior to this workshop. Duke students can download the software for free under the Adobe Creative Cloud link here. Faculty and staff can download a free trail of the software here.
