Until now she had been engraving the patterns shown below with hands, which was used for dyeing the 4m*2m cloth.

She has had a concern about the time it takes to finish a work since all of her works are a single piece of art and she had to do everything with hands.
 
Then this time, she tried a new way of creating her works, which was with the 1m*1m Expansion Kit for FABOOL Laser Mini.
Looks like our laser cutter did a good job since these detailed cutting or engravings are one of the fields that the laser cutters perform the best.

Existing laser cutters’ [laser output]/[cutting area]/[price] were in proportion, so getting a laser cutter with 1m*1m cutting area could cost a few hundred thousand dollars.
 
However, we think there are needs for [large cutting are with relatively low laser output].

We hope more users will create new types of works using FABOOL Laser Mini + Expansion Kit!
 
We would be very happy if FABOOL could be a part of expanding the world of fabrication.
