Introduction: Laser Cut Coat-of-arms

I made it at Techshop! www.techshop.ws

Five years ago I was preparing for my upcoming renaissance themed wedding when I ran across this website on heraldry for pop-up cards. 

http://marivi_heraldry.tripod.com/

They provide free patterns for making pop-up coat-of-arms.

Step 1:

I loved it and used a razor and hours of patience to make my own.

I was very proud, here it is, all cut by hand.

Step 2:

After using the laser cutter, I thought this would be a great project.

I outlined the bitmap with a line drawing removing the fold marks.

Step 3:

Printed it on the laser cutter with a scrap piece.

It was shallow at first, so I cut it again and darkened the “background” area.

Step 4:

Then vector cut the edge.

Beautiful.
