Anticipation is cruel if you’re a geek and you know a laser cutter is on the way. Well, at long last Charlie the Mongo Laser Cutter arrived at Nova Labs, all 650 pounds of her!
This is no ordinary makerspace laser cutter, no, Charlie is a giant. The cutting bed is 1000mm by 600mm which approximates 39″x24″ … that’s big! Not only is it big but it’s powerful, it’s 100 watts. We can’t wait to get it operational!
We’re remarkably fortunate to have such a luxury and have Palantir Corp to thank. Jason, a member of our leadership team, works at Palantir and worked tirelessly to get his company to fund our laser purchase. This wasn’t the first time that Jason was successful in his efforts. We also have Palantir and him to thank for our MakerBot 3D printer.
It’s looking like Nova Labs will soon have all the modern tools for personal fabrication!
