Laser technology to make 3D acrylic shape

  A team of engineers from Germany have used laser cutting and welding to make a complex 3D shape of acrylic sheets.
  "Laser cutters are used for quick prototyping because they are fast, but they can only make planar two-dimensional objects," the developers explained.To create a non-flat object, there is a way to slice objects horizontally and then stack and glue them together.But this usually means a lot of handiwork, losing the sense of rapid manufacturing.
  Their design skillfully combines CAD design with laser cutting acrylic, and the whole process is fully automated and integrated, and the final effect is impressive.
  Laser cutting acrylic sheets are not uncommon in daily life.Because of acrylic waterproof, moistureproof, uv protection, corrosion resistance, high light transmittance has the advantages of the crystal texture, can be seen everywhere in the city street, advertising light boxes, such as use the acrylic material, transparent textures used in furniture production, effect is also different.
