    I can’t find a phone to call, but would like to see the shop. Got a gift certificate for Christmas. When is a good time to drop by? Monday night at 9 doesn’t suit too well. Loren Lind Phone 780 2708

    I recall finding some pages describing the file formats used by the laser cutter and the 3D printer… but can’t seem to find them now using the keyword search etc. Can someone point me to these links or provide the model numbers? Thanks!
