Getting the laser cutter and having it do it’s job is the easy part. The hard part is getting the knowledge and experience needed to get the more intricate and more advanced engravings done. You first must learn how to use the software that the machine uses when it does its job. Many machines use different software so make sure that you have the right file format if you download a template off of the internet.
- When you are using a laser cutter you must use vector files as your design format.
- When you see your design on screen, scale it to the actual size of the model.
- When you are submitting the design to the cutter, ONLY show the design.
“Whether you are an engineer, an entrepreneur, or just a frequent user of prototypes, laser cutting allows the design and manufacture of products with speed and precision — at a low cost.”
