Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Shadow Puppet cutting/laser


I have cut lexan for shadows with the router attachment to one of my dremel
tools, and, just for speed, on thicker lexan I have used my plunge router
(It is sometime tricky with a large router to secure the material so that it
doesn't move, and, of course really fine lines are not possible.)

sometimes think that the last persona is the most important- and most
valuable.

You can also take your designs to a sign shop that has a CNC router (a
computer controlled router). Cheap and fast, moderate clean up.
