This demonstration introduced visitors to Laser cutting, a thermal separation process.

During the process, predetermined geometries were traversed and cut by the laser beam. As with engraving, a wide variety of materials can be used. A vector-based file (lines and curves of a geometry) was the basis for the cutting process.

This process was used to cut shapes (such as letters, signs and tags) as well as items that have previously been engraved. We made some quick projects for visitors to take back home.

Visitors were able to personalize their creations and employ all sections of the in5 laser cutters (Wood, plastic and fabric).
