A few weeks ago we posted about the dispatch of one of our lasers into the hands of YouTube-video creator PhotonicInduction. Andy has been pretty busy in the meantime, zapping bugs, setting fire to his sofa, burning holes in his mobile-phone, and has also produced this great video where he tears down the Sharplan 3000 laser and explains how it works. Highly recommended viewing.

We were a little short of space at rLab and decided to let one of our lasers go to make room for more projects. Some of you might recognise the person that took it off our hands. We’re big fans of PhotonicInduction’s ‘educational’ videos on YouTube, and will be following his channel with interest to see what he does with it. I’m sure he’ll take good care of it!
Matt has done some pretty interesting experiments on solvent welding acrylic to acrylic and acrylic to PLA, with some very interesting and sturdy results, you can get the full low down from his blog here http://heknowswhoheis.co.uk/acrylic-pla-and-solvent-welding/
On Halloween Party Night – Ryan showed his passion as he described the insides of this copper laser……
Here’s some cool visable laser pics and other fun Halloween bits that took place this year on our open night.
