Welcome to the World of DMS Lasering!
Congratulations on finding our Source page, the official record of the committee and chock full of useful information for members. Makers are always learning, so there will be changes as the Laser Committee becomes more knowledgeable about operation and maintenance.

Frequent changes makes it difficult for you, our members, to stay up to date. Fortunately, technology makes it easy. Simply Watch this page to receive change notices by email. Help govern the area by joining the Laser Committee, there's always room for more people.

Check the calendar for meeting times or find us online. Most meetings are followed up by a brief maintenance day and are a great opportunity to learn more about the lasers.

Happy Lasering!

Students can take home their prints right away, but it is recommended that they stay on the drying rack for 3-4 days until they are dry to the touch. if you want to take them home after class and let them dry at home bring a cookie sheet so prints may lie flat and not stick to each other during transport. 

Each student will also get an additional blank wood plate that you can carve or etch on your own for hand printing at home or at the space.

The $10 materials fee covers supplies (fabric, inks & wood plates) and will enable you to take home a set of your own hand printed images.

The etching press will be available at the open print events for those who want to sign up for press time to print their home plate.
