Archimedes Week 4—Introduction to Laser Cutter and Vinyl Cutter Using Adobe Illustrator

This summer, the Alameda County Library offering a series of classes focusing on solving real-world problems using 2D, 3D design and wearable electronics.  In addition to the technical skills, these classes will emphasize the creative problem-solving and lifelong learning skills that Fremont advanced manufacturing employers are requesting.  The classes build towards two final week-long classes working with companies and nonprofits to solve real-world challenges they are facing.

In Introduction to Laser Cutter and Vinyl Cutter Using Adobe Illustrator, students will learn to use CAD to design  an object you want to see exist in real life, then explore how to use our  vinyl cutters and laser cutter to create it. Projects can include stickers, T-shirts, coffee mugs, signs, book covers, and jewelry, just to name a few.    This class will include a series of lectures, then specific challenges designed to increase confidence and competence in the practical design skills and creative problem-solving.
