    Default BUYING: Affordable FB3's For School Club

    Hey Everyone! I am looking to buy 2 used FB3's for an educational project at my high school.

    My school is quite student oriented so I decided to create a laser light show club where I teach other students about show production, laser safety, and logistics. My goal is to help spread the hobby by giving people the chance to interact with equipment and create shows for free. We would mostly just explore the hobby and work on a few shows for the school. Since nothing is for profit we are on an extremely tight budget. I already have several people interested in show production and I think the best way to organize the effort is to have several FB3's that can be lent out to students along with Quickshow. (Out of concern for safety, all laser projection would take place supervised by me at school and in conjunction with a variance. The FB3's would mainly be used to keep the licenses active and for monitoring refresh rates.)

    I am wondering if anyone has some Quickshow FB3's they would be willing to let go of for no more than $250 each. It's fine if they have a few scratches as long as they work like new. I know the price is low but I think this is a valuable opportunity.

    Thanks,

    -Connor

    I'm also willing to buy only one if you don't have two on hand. Feel free to send me a PM.

    Have you reached out to pangolin to see if they have an educational discount. Also if projection is only done at the school does the demo version of QS allow you save? If so you would only need one hardware box.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys!

    I am actually quite interested in LSX for abstract show production but Iím not sure if itís the right fit for people who have never used lasers before. Maybe Iím wrong but it seems like itís a little less intuitive and less graphic oriented.

    And regarding Pangolin, I have asked about educational discounts in the past but they donít seem to offer them. I think itís a bit of a missed opportunity personally.
