Adobe Illustrator for Laser Cutting 101! (& Easy DIY Ornaments)



Once you have mastered Adoble Illustrator, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. This tutorial goes over pen tool, pathfinder, unite, align, image trace, shape tools, text outlines, and a sneak preview of Adobe Draw / Adobe Fresco. The idea with this is it walks you through a couple ornaments you can make in an hour or two at your local makerspace.
