Laser cutting felt is a subtractive manufacturing technology that uses a high-power laser beam to cut flat-sheet materials. A computer directs this laser to follow the cutting line provided in your digital design. The high-precision laser vaporizes a cut line through the felt, leaving a 90-degree high-quality cut-edge finish.
Laser engraving felt is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the felt, it engraves the surface. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser vaporizes a thin layer of the felt surface, exposing what lies beneath. Line engraving (rather than area engraving) is recommended for felt because it produces crisp results.
You can laser cut and engrave your designs in felt using your very own personal factory.
