The laser cutting material sample kit is the best to test!
There’s a lot to compare and to evaluate on the different materials and we designed the plates big enough so you can have a good idea on;
- the strength of each material, there’s a huge variation between cardboard and MDF for instance,
- the different types of dying for colored MDF and the vibrancy of the colored PMMA plates
- the way light is going through the different acrylics. We offer 3 levels of opacity for white for instance and the others colored acrylics are solid or translucent. Thanks to these plates, you can get a clear idea on the rendering of your project.
- the look of the cut slice. Depending on the material, our CO2 lasers will burn more or less the slice of the material, and that’s really important to know for many designs
- the depth of the engraving: we offer 3 different engraving on the website (vector, light raster and deep raster). Each material plate is engraved with :
- a Sculpteo logo (vector engraving)
- the name of the material and the available thicknesses (deep raster engraving)
We have selected small sizes of fonts for engraving so you could have a fair idea of the detailed accuracy that we can get with our professional laser cutters.
If you would like to learn more about the different laser cutting materials, the different types of engraving or get some advice to prepare your vector file, you should definitively have a look on the laser cutting material pages.
