Intro: 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.
They provide free patterns for making pop-up coat-of-arms.
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.
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.
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.
Then vector cut the edge.
