Creating Laser Cut Stencils

Posted on December 17, 2016 at 11:20 pm

Laser cut stencils are used to create highly detailed and clean images as well as pieces of text that are then used for a variety of different purposes. They are often used by businesses as the clean and precise nature of the laser cutting process allows a professional, high quality image to be created.

Both large and small stencils can be created using a laser cutter as Laser cutters often have a large cutting area. If the stencil needs to be bigger than the initial cutting area, then it can be created in multiple sections which can be attached together. There are however limitations of the amount of detail that can be cut into a area on smaller stencils.

Stencils can be created out of a variety of different materials, from fabrics such as cotton and leather to paper, card, wood thin plastics and metals. Professional laser cutters often recommended a material thickness for the level of intricacy that can be achieved.
