Master notches and tabs while making a small cardboard house. Lots of room to push the limits after you get the basics. Since we build out of cardboard I am never sweating wasted materials while we learn. =) https://youtu.be/_IrkjfRASgQ
Instead, I would sweat the possibility of fire, but that is just me.
3 years in and the only cardboard fire I started was when I chose my corriboard settings instead of my cardboard ones!
@theroar84 I gotta start re-learning CAD. I used it in college, but not since then so everything is familiar but nothing works the way it did
A nice thing about using it in the classroom is that there are a lot of eyes on it when it is cutting. Sometimes we have a few corners that smolder, but nothing big. The learning we gain by being able to experiment with our free resources is worth the risk.

I love cutting cardboard and haven’t ever (knock on wood) had the slightest hint of an ember. I just keep the speed up as high as I can and use 100 power.
