Laser Cutting 101
Noah Joseph, Lab Technician, Northeastern University
Take a tour of the newly renovated 3D Print room of the Bioengineering Capstone Collaborative. Briefly explore different 3D printing technologies (Fused Deposition Modeling, Stereolithography, Fused Filament Fabrication, and Continuous Filament Fabrication). Then, take a deep dive into the world of laser cutting with the Boss Laser LS-1420 machine. Learn about how this CO2 laser cutter works and what materials can be cut and engraved. We’ll walk through the process of bringing an idea from file to real-world object.
Noah Joseph earned his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Brown University in 2018. Since September 2018, he has worked as a Lab Technician for both Northeastern’s Bioengineering department as well as the Michael J. and Ann Sherman Center for Engineering Entrepreneurship Education.
Noah oversees the day-to-day operations of the Bioengineering Capstone Collaborative (BCC), which is a workspace that serves bioengineering undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. He maintains and operates instrumentation in the BCC, which include a suite of 3D printers, a laser cutter, hand tools, power tools, and various electronic fabrication/testing equipment.
