dfab: remarkable thing #6
Laser cutting is good for high-detail work that requires precision and perfection. If someone needed to cut out something that required a professional look with good craft, he/she should consider using a laser cutter. The "low-hanging fruits" of this tool are creating ornate, overlapping geometric shapes resembling Islamic architecture. References to nature are common: trees, birds, butterflies, silhouettes, landscapes, etc. On the other hand, cutting out gears and machinery are also common, for the sake of convenience. Outliers I saw during my research include cutting out continuous shapes that do not break on a sheet.
