Pre-machining layout with spray paint and a laser cutter


I needed to duplicate a garage door hinge, and I used to Glowforge to transfer the design onto the metal.


Great usage!


Cool process. I often use the GF to transfer designs to thicker boards that I then cut on the scroll saw. I didn’t even think about trying that for metal. Thanks for the great write up.


Well done.

I am still struggling to get my shop operational. I have prototypes to make so show friends.

and with that post on the chipboard earlier today. my fabricationer is getting twitchy :slight_smile:


That was an amazing fix!


Great write up.


Nicely done! Thanks for sharing!


Nice! Spray paint also works well for transferring like that.
