Why is AP Lazer Better Than a 3D Printer for STEAM?

Like a 3D Printer, But Better

“The AP Lazer has the same basic science and engineering principals as a 3D printer. It features computer controlled three-axis motion, just like a 3D printer,” David Strickler, the president of AP Lazer, explained. “But it boasts more benefits that educators will find to be an advantage.”

At the recent Future of Educational Technology Conference (FETC) held at the Orlando Orange County Convention Center in January, educators immediately recognized that AP Lazer has the high potential to strengthen students’ education in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). Additionally, it can assist schools with cost saving and revenue generation.

“The cutting and engraving speed of the laser is much faster than that of a 3D printer, up to 500x,” Strickler explains. Cutting a simple 3D letter with the AP Lazer takes seconds, a 3D printer takes hours to produce the same object. “This feature makes it possible for an entire class to complete their small projects within one class period. This just can not be done with one 3D printer.”

With the patented two-part architecture, AP Lazer can also complete much larger projects than you could ever dream of with a 3D printer. This means that a large 3D object constructed by AP Lazer’s 2D cutting is impossible for a school scale 3D printer to complete.

So Many Applications, So Little Time

Educators are also excited by the endless applications. AP Lazer provides students the unique ability to learn STEAM through their interests. Theater students can use the laser to create sets, props, and costumes; athletes can engrave things like baseball bats, gloves, shoes and sports balls; artistic students can work on their design skills while producing art with the laser; the musically inclined can engrave inspirational quotes onto music instruments. The wide range of applications will attract students to learn the physics of CO2 lasers, three-axis motion and improve their ability to use computer software. The best part? “It’s easy enough for a 10-year-old to learn and use,” Strickler adds.

An AP Lazer machine can save schools money and generate revenue. The filament for 3D printers can be expensive. In comparison, AP Lazer’s laser tube lasts ten thousand hours. Schools can produce their trophies, signage, wall of fame displays and more – a huge cost saver.  Revenue can be generated by charging fees for students to engrave their personal iPads, smartphones, or personalized gifts.

Fundraising is Fun with AP Lazer

“My daughter raised $250 for Christmas gifts for homeless kids by selling 125 laser cut bracelets. It only took me five minutes to design, the AP Lazer did the rest in 10 minutes.” Tong Li, the inventor of the AP Lazer, said. A school could raise enough money for a playground by engraving donation clay bricks. In addition, they could raise money for their theater program by making or engraving and selling show related paraphernalia.

One FETC attendee commented, “yes, the possibilities are endless.”

3.  Pay For The AP Lazer Machine With The AP Lazer Machine

Yeah, you read that right! The AP Lazer will more than pay for itself. All it takes is a couple of laser jobs per month and you are on your way to paying off the machine, especially if you opt for one of our leasing programs. AP Lazer machines boast some unique features that will set you apart from other laser machines and give you the ability to make money fast. Realizing the potential and taking advantage of our patented open-architecture is extremely valuable and will provide you with many opportunities your competitors can’t provide. A few lucrative business opportunities that will allow you to pay off your laser machine in little time are: signage, memorial products and donation bricks.

Mike was one of the first in the industry to adopt this new technology and it’s given him an edge over his “slower to adapt” competition.

He mentions that our wonderful tech support has given him every bit of help he could ever need.

Mike has this to say about AP Lazer:

Customer Success Story: Okeechobee Funeral Home

customer success storyWe join Matt Buxton of Okeechobee Funeral Home on Performance TV, where he shares the success he’s had using our AP Lazer and how it’s empowered his business to diversify business and offer new products. From caskets to granite monuments and even cut and engraved wooden roses for the bereaved, our laser is helping Matt produce a variety of personalized goods. AP Lazer has added so much value to his products and made diversification a breeze.

In regards to the value AP Lazer has brought to his business, Matt had this to say:
“In Most cases I will add a $65 engraving charge to an urn, but I am finding that most of the time I am giving the engraving away. By doing that, I am selling more urns. I had a family that originally was going with a cardboard minimum container and when I offered the engraving at no charge, the decided to go with a $325 MDF urn that I pay about $40 for. That is extra money that I otherwise would not have been able to make.”

Matt has also started his own line of custom wooden cremation urns, great for families who may not be able to afford the more expensive urns or granite monuments. The urns are first cut, then personalized with photos and text with the AP Lazer. The only thing our laser machine can’t do is glue them together!
