Contours are AMAZING for laser cutter work!

Recommended Posts

I use Affinity Designer to lay out a lot of designs which I bring over to a laser cutter.  With contours now I can just do a couple test cuts, and then just select everything and adjust the whole multi-piece design to just make everything 0.015" bigger or whatever to account for the laser kerf!  This is amazing and now all my stuff will fit together better and the middles of the letters won't fall out of my stencil font text as readily.

I had a process for doing this before but it was awkward and destructive. This is much much better!

Thank you!
