Flowers, Jim; Wierzbicki, Alexander; Weldy, Alexandra – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
The use of CO[subscript 2] laser cutters/engravers in technology and engineering education "allows even beginning students to produce professional parts in a very short time [and] empowers and motivates students, helping to bring out their creativity" (Flowers, 2000, p. 11). They are fast, accurate, fun to use, and they facilitate…

Moore, Pam – Tech Directions, 2012
Many of the advances in telecommunications and medicine are due to laser and fiber-optic technology. This technology has led to devices that provide faster and richer communication, advanced surgeries, and faster healing times, as well as amazing robotics for manufacturing. But, as with all equipment, someone has to install and maintain it. That…

Snyder, Robin M. – Association Supporting Computer Users in Education, 2014
Just as the cost of high quality laser printing started in the tens of thousands of dollar and can now be purchased for under $100, so too has 3D printing technology started in the tens of thousands of dollars and is now in the thousand dollar range. Current 3D printing technology takes 2D printing into a third dimension. Many 3D printers are…

Gill, Melvin; Love, Tyler S. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
Laser engravers/cutters have found their way into many technology and engineering (T&E) education laboratories. Their use can range from from cutting balsa wood truss designs to embossing a decorative logo on a student's project, and the range of materials can be almost as broad. While their capabilities can be virtually endless and the…
