The topic of “digital manufacturing” is omnipresent. In schools and universities, cutting plotters, CNC routers, 3D printers, embroidery machines and laser cutters are often regarded as important tools for digital production and offered as classes. In relation to the laser machine, questions about laser safety come up again and again: What do’s and don’ts need to be observed when using the laser cutter? How do I create a safe learning environment for different users with a basic knowledge?
