I was doing some research this morning, and by chance bumped into some laser cut earrings of a looping design that looked like they could have been created using Sandify. The idea of using Sandify for laser cutting has been nagging at me since then, so I spent a bit of time this evening exploring. Here is the results from two tests:
Not fantastic results, but the technique shows promise. I saved the path out of Sandify, used Inkscape to clean up any lines I found bothersome, and to thickened the lines, exported an image of the design from Inkscape, and traced the result in Lightburn to create the cut path. For the one on the right, I further saved the path from Lightburn and engraved it. I’m not sure about using this technique for earrings, but a larger wall piece that allowed more of the “lace” to be cut might work well.
