“ I can’t wait to use the Zing 16 to help create and cut and engrave parts on my FIRST robotics team's robot. The Zing 16’s precision will also help me create reliable PCBs for use in future projects, as well!” ”Noah Del Coro, Epilog Challenge VI winner
Golden, CO (Oct. 24, 2014)

“I can’t wait to use the Zing 16 to help create and cut andengrave parts on my FIRST robotics team's robot,” Del Coro said. “The Zing 16’s precision will also help me create reliable PCBs for use in future projects, as well!” Del Coro said he’ll be storing the laser at the makerspace used by his FIRST team. “I can’t wait to see what other people create,” he said. “To say I’m excited to have won an Epilog Laser cutter is truly an understatement.”
