Laser cutters are primarily used by engineers, designers, and artists. They can use thin, focused beams in order to cut out the patterns that the designers have created. A laser cutter is known as a CNC, which means that it is run by a computer. They are know as rapid prototyping machines, which is also true for 3D Printers. They are very fast, and can produce designs in only a few minutes. This gives designers a way to quickly create a few of their designs, before they do it on a larger scale.
- The primary people who use a laser cutter are engineers, designers, and other artists.
- The purpose of a laser cutter, is to cut through materials in order to create the designs that the designer is asking for.
- Laser cutters are known as CNC’s, which means that it is controlled by a computer.
“Once a design is sent to a laser cutter, the machine uses a laser beam to cut into or etch into the material on the cutting bed.”
