Finding a self-sufficient solution
Green Lab creates a variety of things in-house. These include vital pieces for their workspace such as lighting rigs, signage, enclosures and mounting boards for technical agricultural projects.
Andrew desired for the lab to be self-sustaining, giving its members the adaptability necessary to be inventive and prototype their designs without worry, as well as to make internal applications for the lab.
Andrew understood that the lab needed an answer that not only would allow the lab reach these goals, but also would get rid of the need to buy items off the shelf. It was also important to take production work in-house to prevent outsourcing, which was not as economical.
These reasons were what lead Andrew to look into laser machines as a possible solution.
