Laser Cut Enclosures : Design & Fabrication

This workshop was an introduction to various techniques for crafting laser cut enclosures for electronic devices. Participants were exposed to the diverse aesthetic styles of enclosures ranging from major synthesizer brands to DIY circuit bent instruments. Additionally, tips on manufacturing and sourcing parts were covered.

At the core of the workshop is the Laser Cutter Electronics Library (LCEL). This Illustrator document contains footprints for a number of commonly used electronic components. With the LCEL, users are able to quickly draft enclosure layouts by simply dragging and dropping the desired component.
