Save The Dates!

(Wednesday, Aug 3rd - Joe )
(Make your own save the dates! These were 3in maple slices)
    The lasers are great for making little save the dates! Very easy project.

Laser Cooling System

(Monday, Aug 1st - Joe )
(Caleb our 12 year old intrepid maker laser cut a custom organizer box.)
    We have implemented a custom cooling solution for our lasers. The requirements were to keep the water cooled lasers as cool as possible, but above dewpoint! Tricky. So, Arduino with temp and humidity sensors, coupled with a Minifridge with a coolant tank and a cooler with the laser reservoir. The arduino simply turns a circulation pump on inside of the minifrige cold tank to bring the temp of the laser tank close to dewpoint. Now we can run our big 100watt laser for hours at a time, even on warm days.
