Get hands-on with a laser cutter to craft your own Stocking gift box! We'll teach you step by step how to Design, Decorate, and Laser cut from start to finish and leave with your own customized stocking Box. Materials included in the admission price.
We'll walk you through the techniques used to make a stocking-shaped box in Fusion360. Then we'll show you how to create a custom design in Adobe Illustrator. You can follow along on your own computer or take notes as we demonstrate.
Then, we'll assist you with creating a custom design for the top of your box, setting it up for laser cutting and sending it to the Dremel LC-40 laser cutter and engraver.
Once your design has been etched, take the craft a step further by painting and adding decorations at our craft station.
Shop3D.ca's expert staff will be on hand to answer your questions about laser cutting. We'll also have examples of other great creations you can make with this tool.
This event is open to everyone. Tickets are limited, sign-up before the event to secure your spot.
Tickets are $10 to cover the cost of materials.
We recommend bringing a laptop with you so you can follow along with our tutorial and create your own design. If you do bring the laptop you will want to come with the following programs installed:
Fusion360 (Free Trial / Free for Personal Use):
Adobe Illustrator (Free Trial):
Do I need a computer to participate?
While recommended, a computer is not needed for this workshop. You can observe as we demonstrate designing the box on the big screen. Customization of the design can be done with assistance by one of our staff. Painting and decoration is done by hand!
Will I get the working files?
Those who purchased a ticket will be given access to our files and some additional assets before the event. Download them to follow along, or create your own customized design.
