How can a laser cutter be used in architectural model making?

In both architectural model making and toy models, you can easily laser cut and engrave the smallest components. Fast and precise laser cutting of materials including textiles, plastic, wood, veneer, MDF, PMMA, cardboard, paper, foam, polystyrene, film, acrylic, plastic and much more is possible.

Designs are drawn as normal in a CAD or graphics program. The laser cutting machine works with maximum precision and cuts your components for detailed building models, model railways, true-to-scale reproductions of various constructions or architectural models. You can use the parts immediately without post processing – and without burrs, dust or swarf. Laser cuts are precise and clean.

“Having a Trotec laser engraving machine has been a really good drawcard in getting people into the Makerspace. When they learn more about it and realise how versatile and useful it is, they often stay here a lot longer and build projects around it.”
