Basic knowledge of the laser cutter and cutting plotter. The goals are independent work with the laser cutter and cutting plotter, as well as a sensitivity for the work process. Successful completion of the module entitles the participant to use the laser/plotter independently, in each case in consultation with the workshop management.
Introduction in theory and practice with the media laser cutter, cutting plotter and Illustrator. The basics are taught and experiments are carried out with various materials. Based on this, areas of interest will be determined and initial design drafts will be executed. Subsequently, an individual project will be implemented with the laser cutter and the cutting plotter in order to deepen the work process and the handling of materials and technology. Finally, the work will be presented and discussed in a plenary session.

GRADING OF ASSESSED ASSIGNMENT(S)
The performance record is evaluated on the basis of five criteria:
1. research & thematicﬁndings / breadth and conclusiveness of the clarifications.
2. technical competence / creative diversity in design, implementation and use with the material
3. professional competence / technical skill in handling the machines
4. process / The development of a personal interest and the intensity of the examination.
The students completed an introduction and examination in theory and practice with the media laser cutter, cutting plotter and Illustrator. An individual project was designed, drawn with Illustrator and various materials were tested with the machines. Special attention was given to experimenting with the material on the laser cutter/cutting plotter and the subsequent development of the design. The module led to the authorization to independently use the laser cutter and cutting plotter at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
