Whether you’re a professional maker or an at-home hobbyist, laser cutting is a wonderful option for crafting unique creations.
The applications for laser cutting are endless. Think signage, jewellery, trophies, tools, homewares, and furnishings. It can also be used with a wide variety of materials such as glass, plastic, paper and cardboard, timber, metal, and steel.
At Vital Line in Perth we’re always on the look-out for fresh ways to use laser cutting. After searching Etsy, Pinterest, Instagram feeds, local manufacturers, and our go-to design blogs, we’ve compiled some of our favourite finds to get you inspired for your next project.
Laser Cut Jewellery
Many jewellery pieces are made possible by laser cutting elaborate designs into lightweight materials.
The funky shapes and cut-out details in these gorgeous earrings, from Mikmat Designs in Port Macquarie, have been produced by laser cutting wood and acrylic. The etchings on the clear acrylic earrings are also a great example of laser engraving.
With our laser cutting machines we can use pulsing to create holes and small details, to realise even the most complex designs.
