Plywood Living Hinge Design for Laser Cutters

Another cool technique for your bag of CNC panel-cutting tricks.  The booklets and photos shown here are from the Dutch firm Snijlab lasersnijden (which, obviously, translates as “Snijlab Laser Ninjas”).   The method is kind of like kerf-bending, but the cuts go all the way through the substrate.

  1. “(which, obviously, translates as “Snijlab Laser Ninjas”)” Not quite; Snijlab lasersnijden would be Cutlab lasercutting when literally translated. Lovely cuts though. :)

  2. what does the cut drawing look like and also it would be nice if there was a dxf file available
