Epilog Laser distributor Fairway Laser Systems announces the dates of its upcoming workshop series-four-hour classes covering a variety of laser engraving-related topics at its headquarters, 950 Transport Drive in Valparaiso, Indiana.
The Back to School Laser Workshop Series schedule continues on Sept. 29 with a class focused on photo engraving exclusively. Beginning at noon on that Friday, “Working with Photos” covers the ins-and-outs of photo manipulation, as well as the best materials to achieve the highest quality engraving. “Above all,” the company notes, “it will focus on using EngraveLab PLP to make photo engraving as simple as a few clicks.”
For those designers seeking more advanced training, Fairway presents the “Advanced CorelDraw” workshop on Friday, Oct. 27. For those that already have a basic background in CorelDraw, this class will focus on the more advanced tools and techniques used in conjunction with your laser system. Beginning at 12 p.m., the four-hour class will explore redrawing graphics, tiling images for large jobs, setting up jigs and fixtures for multiple engravings, setting up color-mapped jobs, and more. “For those that have a basic background in CorelDraw, the Advanced Basics workshop is for those that want to dive deeper than simple text and clipart to take their cutting and engraving work to another level,” the company says. Basic Corel knowledge is encouraged.
The schedule will conclude with Fairway’s “Laser Maintenance” class on Friday, Nov. 17, covering how to keep your laser system running like new with proper maintenance and cleaning techniques.
Registration for each course is $49 and the company encourages attendees to bring a laptop.
