For those who are not familiar yet with our online laser cutting service, here are some information about it.
What is laser cutting?
Laser cutting is a method for transforming 2D file into a real object. This technology involves cutting materials with highly accurate laser that focuses on a small area of the material. This method enables to cut within a thickness up to 10 mm. In Sculpteo we use a high-speed continuous CO2 laser cutter that can cut all types of materials.

What laser cutting material can I use?
Materials are the essential part in creating your products or prototype. That is why we offer you a wide variety of laser cutting materials directly available on our intuitive online laser cutting platform. We have more than 60 different material combinations (types, colors, thicknesses). You can cut in:
- Aesthetic materials: Acrylic, Plywood, MDF, Cardboard
- Mechanical plastic: POM
- Metals: Aluminium, Stainless Steel and Steel
- And if you want a material that is not in our list, you can request it with the “custom material” option.
