Get the Most Out of Your Laser-cutting Project

Laser cutting is a manufacturing technique that can provide you with unique products made from a variety of different materials.

A highly accurate laser is used to transform a 2D file into a physical object by cutting through the material at high speed.

This method can be used by engineers, artists, designers or even companies looking to customise their products.

This process is also quite cost-efficient and can be applied to jewellery, furniture or business cards. Here are some ways to get the most out of your latest laser-cutting project.

Choose the best material for your needs

This depends on the type of project you’re undertaking. Decide on the best material to ensure you choose the one with the best properties for your project. Consider the look and feel of your design and what you would like the final product to look like.

Our Laser Cutting technology is highly accurate which allows objects to be cut to a fine tolerance. Unlike conventional techniques Laser Cutting with our machine will produce pieces with a polished edge that will not require any additional finishing. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Prepare any texts for laser cutting and engraving

Consider how the text will look on the final product. Have enough spaces between the letters so that it doesn’t look cramped and do not make the lettering too small. Also, keep in mind that the texts must be treated like shapes and be vectorised to achieve best results.

Create nodes

If your finished product will need to be assembled, be sure to include small nodes in your design model for interlocking once the laser cutting process has been completed.

Find great 2-D designs

If you are a small business or hobby artist or solo entrepreneur and unable to get a professionally designed 2-D model, there may be models available for use online that you can customise for your needs.

Online marketplaces offer affordable designs by both amateur and more experienced artists that can be personalised for personal or commercial use. Just be sure to check for copyrights.
