Laser Cutters for Fablabs and Educational Settings

Trotec Laser Machines allow for inspiring application capabilities. Art and design projects once thought to be far-fetched are now made possible with our laser technology. In Fablabs and Educational settings, laser machines are used for model making, prototyping, industrial design, and DIY.

DIY Projects Using a Wide Range of Materials

Materials used in prototyping can vary considerably from job to job, Acrylics being among the most commonly used. However, it can range from Paper, Cardboard, Wood, MDF, Textiles, Synthetics Materials, Plastics, Polystyrene, Films and Foils, and more. All which are perfectly processed on a Trotec Laser Cutter Machine.

Prototyping and Industrial Design

Lasers are a flexible tool suited for working with prototypes and experimental setups. When using graphics programs, for example CAD, your drawings and designs will be sent directly to the laser, allowing your ideas to be recognized and tested instantly.

Why Trotec

Easy use

Operating a Trotec laser system is as easy as operating a printer. Layouts for architectural models are printed directly from the design program, and the laser parameters are indicated. You can be certain that the laser will cut your model buildings quickly and reliably.

Flexibility - in material and application

Many different materials are used in architectural model making: textiles, wood, veneer, MDF, synthetic materials, plastics, PMMA, cardboard, paper, foam, polystyrene, foils and films, acrylic, and many more. These materials require different treatment by the laser in order to achieve optimum results. Trotec offers a wide range of useful tools for this purpose: vacuum table, pass-through, different lenses, gas kit, and more.

JobControl laser software

The JobControl laser software offers numerous tools that are particularly useful among Trotec lase users: JobHistory and JobTimeCalculator make pre-production planning and any subsequent invoicing easier. Furthermore, the Trotec JobControl includes a mode that ensures that pre-defined parameters cannot be changed retrospectively. Thus, the initial situation is always the same for all users.

Maximum precision and detail

With laser technology, you can produce even the fine

st designs with maximum precision. This gives you complete freedom when designing your models. Through first-class engraving of surface textures and façade structures, you can produce presentation and competition models of the highest quality and detail.

One tool for all applications

Milling requires a different tool head for different materials, shapes and material strengths. The laser beam is the universal tool for all applications.

Perfect cutting and engraving results

Trotec lasers can be used for both cutting and engraving with maximum precision. High-quality axis drives and intelligent air flow of the Trotec lasers ensure that results are always optimal. Engrave surface textures and façade structures and cut building models with maximum quality and detail.
