Advantages

  • Can produce parts of almost any 2D shape
  • More precise and economical than plasma cutting
  • Fast turn time
  • Can be used to etch instead of cut

Design Considerations

  • Sharp inside corners may be slightly rounded due to beam radius
  • Edges will be heat affected
  • Edges may have some draft
  • Minimal kerf width
  • Keep hole diameters equal to or larger than the material thickness

What is a 2D Part?

2D parts are significantly more cost-effective to manufacture than 3D parts, so understanding what makes them different is essential.

An example of a 2D part is a stencil as shown. A stencil is considered 2D because it has no features on its sides and is modeled using two or fewer thicknesses.
