Laser cutting is an advanced technology that makes use of a laser to cut materials. It’s a popular technique used within many industries, and should be considered for your next theatre or film set. Here are four reasons why:
Laser cutting is extremely precise. No matter how complex or intricate the design of your set is, laser cutting can achieve the desired results using a variety of materials. Whether you need a set created from wood, acrylics, plastics, or something else entirely, CNC routing can transform your designs with a high degree of precision.
Once the designs have been translated into vector drawings that can be used by the laser cutting technology, the production of the set can happen very quickly – often within a day, depending upon the availability of materials and amount of work required. This is perfect if your production is moving quickly, and means that the set and associated props will rapidly be available for rehearsals.
The process is highly efficient and relatively straightforward, which means the costs can be accurately provided at the start of the project. This is perfect for theatre and film, which tend to be associated with tight budgets, enabling the costs associated with the set to be forecasted upfront.
It Provides High-Quality Outputs
The process of laser cutting guarantees only the highest quality outputs for your set. Unlike traditional cutting methods, there’s no risk of warping or material contamination. Additionally, due to the precision of the manufacturing process, exact replicas of the props and set pieces can be produced if they’re required, providing you with peace of mind should any component of the set be damaged during rehearsals.
