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.
