Laser Cutter Purchase Proposal (Notes)
- Recipient: Dean ""
- Review: RC
- Status: Napkin Sketch
- Authorship: Sebastien Bailard -> RC, Shem, Janak
- Timeline to proposal submission: ?????????????????????????????????
Notes: This material may be extraneous to RepRap, but we can use it as a template for RepRap purchase proposals and funding.
100 word discription: how big, what model, what wattage, cost estimate, exhausts go where?, safety protocols, identify stakeholders.
We are building up an imagebank/link-bibliography of the background and context of using a laser cutter in user-fabricated art, tech, and design. This will motivate the purchase, and motivate the students once we've got it.
NOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTENOTE It is difficult and dangerous to play with a CNC mill or CNC router. You can not just slap random material on the workbeds of the former. Laser Cutters admit a different mode of use: of Collage, or Tattooing, or Cut-up. (Examples?)

Theory: Architecture Pedagougy and Laser Cutters
Addressing 3D form using 2D fabrication. Not going to treat this as graphic design Tool: MacBook Tattoos ridiculously mediagenic example which does addressing human needs and wants, but we're thinking 3D primarily. Modelmaking, 3D, Math Laser
DFF modules. Integrate into curriculum?
Did not address that with CNC router.
Learning, experimentation, etc. As natural as drawing in a sketchbook, chiseling a beam, or modeling in plasticine. Best mode to engage student.
Desired Learning Outcomes
What does the student walk away with?
