Preparing your project or laser cutting

Here are some tips to help you prepare your laser cutting and engraving project.

Preparing your artwork

Your artwork should be ready to submit to Maui Laser Cutting in PDF form, but we can also except it in Ai or EPS form. Graphics should be in vector form with items grouped accordingly. All through cuts should be in red and all engraving should be in black.

If you do not have proper vector graphics, we can redraw your artwork for you.

Size limitations

The cutting bed of our laser is 18″ x 24″ but is open ended on the front so it can accommodate 36″ x 24″. We can fit slightly larger materials into the machine but the cutting area can only be 18″ x 24″.

Cutting materials

Typically, with wood projects, less than 1/4″ is best for vector (outline) cuts. Engraving can be done on any thickness.
