Laser Cutting Fabric
I study product design and I'm designing a home craft laser cutter machine, I was hoping anyone who has experimented with laser cutting fabric/ clothing/accessories could share what tips they found made the process easier or the problems that occurred whilst doing this. I would appreciate if you could help me with a few questions I have :)
What did you use to keep the fabric straight whilst laser cutting?
What would be the best material to put in between the fabric to prevent cutting through for example both sides of a t shirt, plastic sheet or cardboard or.. ?
Would you find it beneficial if you could have a small machine to cut out smaller sized fabric to attach for dresses, tops etc of for accessories?
If there is any aspect of the process that you think would benefit from being made simpler what would it be?
Thank you for your time
Any feedback would be much appreciated
