Laser Cutting Services

There are several reasons why laser cutting services are important. At Southern Model, Inc., we can show you how to get the precision and sharp edges needed for model building and more. You don’t have to cut everything by hand – and when you use materials that can’t be cut by hand, a laser can provide the clean lines you’re looking for in 2D and 3D models.

What is Laser Cutting Services in Model Production?

Laser cutting services are used in model production for several reasons. It offers the versatility to cut and engrave several different materials:

  • Wood
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Foam
  • Acrylic
  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Synthetic materials

You already know that a good model will incorporate an array of different materials. It offers diversity to mimic the various materials in the real world – like buildings, trees, and lakes. Precision is critical – and using a laser will give you clean cuts that do not require any kind of post-processing.

Model building is time-consuming – but it only takes as much time as you allow it to take. By using laser cutting services, you do not have to fret with traditional templates and cutting objects by hand. Instead, you can draw everything within a CAD program and allow the laser to cut out (or engrave) the designs for you.

Regardless of the kind of geometry that you are using within your model, lasers can offer you the precision needed to get the job done.

How is your project going to stand out?

Often, models are about the details. How is your project going to stand out? By using laser cutting services, you can engrave intricate details, such as shingles on a roof, windows on a high rise, and even the names of storefronts on the buildings along a road.

Your goal should be to make people feel as though they are inside your model. You will place some items around for scale to help people understand the size of your structures. And, while you also want people to use their imagination as to how the space can be used, detail allows you to stand out. People can “ooh” and “ahh” when you present a scale for marketing purposes. Even if you’re creating a scale for legal purposes, the engraved and laser-cut items can make it easier for people to understand what’s in front of them – doors versus windows, hallways versus rooms, and so much more.

Consider a single four-sided tower. If you were to try to cut the panels by hand, you would need all four to be cut to the exact specifications or they would not line up. Even then, how are you going to cut out the shapes of windows, incorporate archways, railings, windows, and more? It all becomes tedious – and leaves your designs vulnerable to countless errors.
