Cutting a color laser or inkjet print

I cannot see a way to laser cut a laser or inkjet print. There is no way to synch a printer with the GF like a Cricut or Silhouette can do.
The reason is that you can’t place the cutting image exactly where you want it.

OR IS THERE A WAY and I can’t find it??

No, that is correct…there will (hopefully soon) be a Snapmarks function added to the Premium subscription that will enable you to tie in your cuts to a printed result the way the Silhouette does.

But it has not come out yet…it’s just been Beta tested at this point. :slightly_smiling_face:

There are some work-arounds, but they are a bit time consuming.

(Do make sure that you have run the Camera Calibration and are using the Set Focus tool when you align them visually…really helps for single items.)



thanks, there’s a guy like you but on the Formlabs website that is very knowledgeable on the FL2 and FL3; maybe a cousin?


No, I can just about guarantee he’s no relation…my family tends to be quite techno-phobic.

Makes for fun holiday gatherings. :smile:

You can do it, but it’s a bit manual-here’s how I did it:
