Awesome! Just one problem: Can't anybody who reads this (not just Instructables members) use that code?

I think the point is to get more traffic to the business, so we all win (they get customers, we get cheap laser cutting).. Plus, how many non-Instructables-regulars do you know who trawl these forums? I don't know many.

I just downloaded the starter kit. I have a few days off before I have to go back to school, so I will see what I can get done. Thanks for the discount code!
