Project of Ming-Jer Kuo, MFA Photography, Video & Related Media, SVA Laser cutting acetate on our laser cutter. We used 85-speed 30-power and 900 frequency.

Ming's project required cutting an intricate pattern after it was printed on acetate. It was a laborious process when he cut this was an exacto. So we made it work using our laser cutter. First we translated his photo in Adobe Illustrator into vector outlines using the 'Live Trace' tool. This gave us a near exact outline of the artwork. Then we laser cut a very lite line on a sheet of chip board as the registration surface. This chip board was secured and used to align the acetate.
