WHAT IS A LASER CUTTER?

Laser cutters use an extremely fine beam of light at a very high temperature to burn through material. This fine beam allows you to cut at a very high level of precision and detail. Laser cutters follow the lines of your CAD drawing, cutting as they go. However, laser cutters do not only cut through material, they can also engrave text, patterns, or even Jpg. With the ability to use the laser cutter you will quickly be able to incorporate a level of precision and detail into your work that you would not be able to achieve by hand alone.

WHAT IS IT FOR?

Laser-cutting is a 2D fabrication tool; however it is very useful in the 3D construction process of architectural models. For example, a 3D landscape model could be sliced into 2D contours and laser cut separately, or a series of 2D laser cut components could be slotted together to create a much larger 3D object. Due to its speed and accuracy, laser cutting is a very useful tool for prototyping and is used widely across many different design disciplines.
