VFL Staff are always prototyping, too! Student worker Hannah Rudin (MFA in Products of Design, '19) works on a duster for the vents of the laser cutter. It doesn't take long to get some scrap materials together and try out a couple different versions! These were made with some funky yarn, craft pipe cleaners, and a scrap wooden dowel. It's important to wipe the vents clean to keep gunk like resin and smoke from building up, but sometimes we need to figure out how to do it.
