The right decision for the School
John O'Shea, technical officer at UCD discovered Trotec through online forums and word of mouth from his contacts. Having read positive reviews, John decided to find out more.
John visited Fab Lab Limerick where he saw a Speedy 360 laser cutter in action and after seeing what was possible, he booked a demonstration at Trotec's Dublin showroom. During the demonstration, John was shown the full range of Speedy lasers from the 100 to 400 by Trotec's area manager, but it was the Speedy 300 laser which was the ideal match for the school's requirements.
John found the Trotec experience excellent from his initial demonstration through post-sale. The accuracy of the laser allows for the fine details required in architectural model making to be realised with ease. The training that John received from Trotec's area manager also proved to be invaluable. John now trains the students who are then ready to use the laser in as little as a single session, with each student given a small card with common settings and questions which are laser engraved into waste materials as a keepsake.
