What is laser cutting?

Laser cutting is one of the digital making methods available through Personal Factory.

Laser cutting is a type of subtractive manufacturing that cuts a digital design file into a piece of sheet material.

A computer directs a high-power laser at the material. The material then melts, burns or vaporizes leaving an edge with a high-quality finish.

Pioneer in the make-it-yourself movement.

New Materials: Ultrasuede is here!

One of our most requested materials is now available in the US

Ultrasuede for laser cutting

Invented in Japan in the 1970’s, this popular material is known for having a luxurious feel, being extremely durable and a breeze to clean. The fabric is65% non-woven ultra-microfiber polyester and 35% non-fibrous polyurethane binder. It feels like natural suede but is resistant to stains and discoloration. With the woven fabric surface, it resists pilling and fraying. These are perfect for your a wide range of laser cut products — from small device covers to fashion items like shoes or home items such as furniture pieces.
