Achieving perfect results in fabrication requires understanding what materials can be machined and what are their properties as different materials behave differently. Also each material can be processed by different machines. For example wood is not good for water jet cutting however stainless steel can be perfectly cut on both water jet and metal laser cutter.
To provide better understanding on what machine can do with specific material we have put together this database. Materials listed on this page are the once Laser-CutZ uses most commonly, we probably can work with other materials not listed here, we will be updating list as we go. If material you need not listed here or you need to work with it even though it’s not technically possible we still may be able to find solution for your request as we have access to different fabrication machines.
Our laser machine is capable of cutting and etching various types of organic materials. Most common is acrylic aka plexi glass. Each material has its own physical properties, advantages and disadvantages. If you working on mechanical design you should understand your material implication pretty well. On another hand if you working on aesthetics and visual design in most cases you would only care about how easy is to cut or engrave in given medium. It is always better to work with materials that are easier to cut, as end quality will be better.
