 Laser Cutting Technical Help

As a general rule, the thicker the material you are using, the higher the need for adjustments to your laser. It is important to use a slower cutting speed with thicker materials to eliminate the risk of smoke residue and melting.

It is recommended that the clear protective masking be left in place when vector cutting. The masking protects the plastic from excessive burning. If wrinkles or bubbles in the masking are present, it is important that the masking be smoothed or removed before cutting. Gases trapped under the masking can damage your work.

Experience shows that the most effective method for vector cutting is to cut from the back to the front. This requires the on-screen image to be flipped in order for the cut piece to be right reading and to place the material in the laser bed face down. It also requires cutting directly on the laser bed, not on a honeycomb insert. (When the laser hits the edges of the honeycomb cells, it bounces back causing a pitting that will ruin the surface of the material it is in contact with.) Whenever it is convenient, leave the factory masking on the front surface and if good results are still not being achieved, try spraying the bed with water to absorb heat before laying the material face down with the masking on. If two passes still prove necessary, adjust the first setting so the cut travels nearly all the way through the substrate. The second cut, the one affecting the face of the material, should be adjusted to a much cooler setting, just enough to cut through the remaining substrate and cap.

Dimensional Lettering
With our laser cutting capabilities we can custom cut dimensional letters or logos out of a variety of materials, which can be attached in a variety of ways.


Looking for high-quality signs or storefront displays? QuickSmart can create 2D and 3D point-of-purchase displays, custom backdrops for window displays, light box signage, lettering and even wooden signs featuring hand-crafted antique designs. Let us help get your business noticed with custom designs cut from wood, acrylics, brushed metals and more.


From simple elegance to elaborate and ornate, we create custom inlays both for individual architects and for use as promotional items. The design possibilities and types of wood are limited only by your imagination. Once you have a good laser cutting specialist on your team, you'll quickly realize that the sky is indeed the limit. If you could use some fresh inspiration, ask us to send you a couple of images of laser cut timber signs and floor graphic signage.
