Laser Cutting Royal Lions

Laser cut lanterns, signs, skulls, and a map!

Above is a laser cut paper street lamp. This work, cleverly transforming flat media like Ponoko’s cardstock into 3 dimensions, is from Paper Faber and looks just as good flat as it does “poped” up. See another look at this street lamp at the end of this post!

Laser Cutting In Her Eyes

Laser cut art, Daleks, dogs, hops, and clock!

Above is an artwork titled “Rusty Girl” from perishable Rush. It is made from paper found on the streets of Amsterdam, comic book, magazine pages, and torn screen prints which form a ski mask around laser etched, halftone eyes and a mouth. Halftone is a printing technique that using variant sized dots to create light and shade out of photographs and is well suited to laser raster engraving on Ponoko’s own cardstock or mix it up with acrylic.

Laser Cut GrannyMan Puppet

Colorful threads complete whimsical animated character

Combining rigid laser cut forms with softer materials can have quite a striking effect, as you can see in this cycling puppet designed for a short film by Teje la Araña.

Colored yarn has been threaded through the laser cut pin holes, completing the form in a way that really enhances the playful feel of the character. You can check out a brief clip of Alvaro Leon’s puppet, and even download files to make a threaded cyclist of your very own from Thingiverse.

Let us know in the comments below if you’ve done something interesting by combining laser cutting with fabric or yarn.

Laser cut replica Wolcott mirror camera

Creating a miniature replica of pioneering photographic technology

With cameras at our fingertips at almost every waking moment, taking a quick selfie or a snapping a portrait of your nearest and dearest (yes, cats count too!) is something most of us do every day. For photographer Guy J. Brown, the passion for portraiture goes a little deeper; in fact, he specialises in recreating pioneering photographic techniques and devices.

One such device is the Wolcott Camera, said to be the first ever patented back in 1840. Guy has utilised the technology of his 21st century workshop to bring this early portrait machine back to life. The result is something to behold… with laser cut ply components designed in Adobe Illustrator, and hardware purchased from eBay completing the ‘baby Wolcott’.

Follow through to the source link to find out more about this project, including a deeper look at the original Wolcott camera. You can also download files to construct your own nostalgic photographic device – and then show those Instagram filters how it’s really done.

Are you a laser-equipped retro shutterbug too? Tell us about your laser cut camera experience in the comments below.
