I love working with laser cutters. A good one is the best tool in the world. Here’s a project I made with a laser cutter!
I took a topographical map, did some processing in Photoshop and Illustrator, and then put the whole thing through a laser cutter and created this beautiful physical topo map!
Original topo map, downloaded from this excellent website: http://www.topoquest.com/:
Some day soon here I’ll write up how I went from the original image to the final product. It was a lot of trial and error in Photoshop and Illustrator to get out the info that I needed and it would be nice to have it documented!
