Since I had some thin cotton fabric out after the last project…I wanted to see what would happen when I tried to cut it with the laser.
Great success! It would take FORever to cut something like this out by hand, and the results would be no where near as neat as this one turned out.
To prep the fabric, I covered it front and back with paper masking tape to keep the residue to a minimum on the fabric itself.
Then I just taped it down to the grid, used some double sided Scotch 714 adhesive in a couple of places on the back to stick it temporarily to the grid and keep the parts from flying, and let 'er rip.
No fraying either, although it does still smell a little smoky.
