The La Vista Public Library has a Universal Laser Cutter available for public use. The full policy on this machine's usage can be read here: Laser System General Use Policy
In general, the following requirements need to be met to use this machine.
To use the laser cutter customers must...
Be 16 years of age or older.
Complete the required general safety training.
Sign the "Laser System Usage" agreement form.
Set up a time to use the laser cutter at least 30 min. in advance. A staff member will need to be available during this time so we recommend you schedule at least the day before to ensure the machine will be available. Note: The laser cutter is unavailable during the hour before close.
Using the machine is FREE. However, customers can purchase materials (such as wood) from the library for their projects.
If customers bring in their own materials to cut, they must also bring a tag or receipt showing what the material is made of. Some materials cannot be used in the laser cutter as they will cause damage to the machine, the user, and/or the library.
