#1

This is a Laser Lace project I did at Fab Lab in Flint Michigan. I used their Epilog Laser.
I cut the same file 3 times shrinking it so I could see where the resolution broke down. It cut good on all three but the smallest is very fragile.


#2

Beautiful!! I love it!


#3

That’s a clever way to experiment, and it came out nicely!


#4

Very pretty! Are they made of paper?


#5

That’s lovely.


#6

Pretty…
And yes, as you discovered…at some point even though you see the lines on the screen, the width of the laser beam overlaps and vaporizes it…:smirk:
I have a standard width of .03125" when I cut stencils on polyester film (mylar) for any bridges or space between cut lines, otherwise it will break.


Stenciling magic

Yes, they are cut out of paper. I used water color paper. I probably had the power too high because of the scorch marks but it was an experiment,.


#8

Glad to see someone else in Southeast Michigan :slight_smile:

Very nice experiment.


#9

You’re not too far from me (but I’m across the border, haha).

Sometimes I look south across the river to see my friends in Canada :astonished:
