Design using code. Paul Krix who is a designer, creates intricate designs of his work that were pattern-based in nature which were manipulated through software in order to generate the final designs. Many designers who use laser machines are inspired by forms or patters found in nature, but there are few articulate organic influences from a scientific ways. Paul Krix creates uniquely and artistically an individual personal laser cut for jewelry which was aesthetically being informed using programming based on algorithms that he discovered several years ago. Later, Paul came across to the field of research about algorithms copying the chemical procedures and process of leaf formations as well as deciding to use it as his basis for the modelling system. visit her latest blog posted at http://awesomesaucebookclub.com/how-to-laser-cut-the-basics-of-cutting-with-a-laser-system/
The incredible, amazing Folding Ukulele which comes from the ‘maker of anything’ called Brian Chan. The ukulele was designed by Brian Chan who didn’t want a traditional ukulele, and so went about changing the basic shape to make it foldable for ease of portability. Soprano and the supermini sizes of this kind are available anytime on Ponoko, either fully finished or in kit form. With the design being drafted already, Brian was able to get in touch with Josh, a Community Support trusted Manager, to make a prototype of his project through laser-cutting. As you can see, the design is pretty complex, consisting of multiple flat pieces that need to fit together perfectly to create not just a 3D object. visit their official website for more details.
Generative laser cut puzzle. This unusually intricate laser cutter design of a wooden puzzle through the Nervous System which was unique in a sense. It was then designed using the so-called generative technique in the form of processing—that is why every single piece is made uniquely and each puzzle was made in this manner would be somehow amazing and unique. If 2 or 10 puzzles were being made, no 2 pieces in every puzzle would be the same.
The said puzzle happens to be just an experiment for an upcoming potential product. I cannot wait to see what image and form they will include in it.

Robotic claw business card. Another top headline contender. My old favorite laser business card project was, of course, Meat Cards, thus robot claws will definitely outclass for a contact information jerky. The design continues to evolve, so be sure you check out the latest updates about instructions where you may able to find all of the needed information in order to build unique robotic claw for business card solely.
Ornamental laser cutting. This is a roundup post of several breathtaking ornamental forms of laser cut arts and designs covered by A laser cutter. My favorite of all is the topographic model cut in a form of a chunk of Mars. It is the sort of this thing which you could see in photographic or data form coming from the NASA; however, only digital fabrication can possibly make it more tangible.

Laser cutting is used to cut any number of items from a variety of materials, such as clock faces, jigsaw puzzles, metal tags, packaging, machinery parts and components, signs, leather upholstery pieces, patterns, and more.
According to Coherent, a company that manufactures laser cutting machines, laser cutting may:
“… Concentrate a greater amount of energy towards a small and well-defined identified spot. The heat energy result, created through the laser, will vaporize the materials in it as a small-defined place and gas, and/or a mixture of different gases, like CO2, Oxygen, nitrogen, or even helium is then used in blowing out the material that was being vaporized by the kerf. The energy of the beam is applied right away and directly to where it is really needed, minimizing the HAZ or the Heat Affected Zone.”
Laser cutting is a process where a laser beam is used to heat a piece to the point where it is precisely severed. According to Answers.com, laser machines include a high-powered laser and a computer to direct the laser beam onto the material to be cut. From there, the laser beam melts, vaporizes, or burns the material along the predetermined cut line, resulting in a precise, neatly cut edge.
Laser Cutting Applications
Laser cutting is used by manufacturers, small businesses, schools, and hobbyists alike. According to Coherent, common items suitable for laser machine include:
When it comes to cutting metal, wood, glass, and other hard surfaces, it’s hard to imagine a beam of light being able to keep up with a spinning blade. A traditional beam of light would indeed have a tough time. That said, a concentrated laser beam makes cutting a breeze. for additional tips, learn more information at http://hackaday.com/2017/07/12/laser-cutting-orreries/
Advantages of Laser Cutting
Laser machine do not wear due to cutting, resulting in less strain on the cutting equipment. Laser cut edges are clean. In addition to cutting items, lasers can also cut small, highly detailed holes with good edge quality. The laser machine has come of age and are proven to be a reliable, advantageous alternative to other cutting methods.
Finally, laser offers numerous advantages over other types of cutting. Not only can you cut a variety of materials such as paper, plastics, cardboard, leather, and metal, lasers are extremely precise. Once a pattern is programmed into a laser cutter, it will continue to cut an exact copies piece after piece.
