Laser cutting is a precise method of cutting or etching a design in a given material using a CAD file to guide it. As the laser beam travels along the material, everything in its direct path is vaporized, burned or melted. This tool is great for creating high quality, dimensionally accurate cuts, and also for making multiples. There are many different types and sizes of lasers available, from hobbyist desktop models to massive industrial versions, that can cut and/or mark a wide variety of materials. Some common materials include wood, acrylic, leather, paper, fabric, cork, and glass.
