If you need to cut a complex pattern on a laser cutter, take a look at this collection of free patterns, at least one of them may meet your requirements.
We have named the category ‘Laser Cutting Designs’, though these design patterns are also suitable for cutting on waterjet machines, CNC routers, Plasma cutters ... Many similar patterns can also be found in the ‘Scroll Saw Patterns’ category, and the only difference between the two categories previously mentioned is that the laser cutting patterns category includes more complicated patterns, full of small details, which are unsuitable for manual cutting or cutting on a scroll saw machine.
If you have an idea on how to use one of these patterns but do not dispose of a laser cutter, please don't give up! Nowadays, there are a number of companies that offer laser cutting services. Just select the pattern you like, determine the dimensions of the cut pattern, and send the desired dimensions and the files offered here to the chosen company. A laser-cut panel that will decorate your project will arrive at your address in no time.
If you know how to use vector or 2D CAD software, feel free to browse through the entire Free Patterns category of our site; you will probably find some interesting pattern that, with a little modification, can be customized to your project on a laser cutter.
As in other categories where you can download 2D patterns, the above patterns too are available in vector (.eps and .svg) and 2D CAD (.dwg) file formats. As a 2D CAD file format, we have chosen to offer you only the .dwg extension. The reason for this is simple: .dxf files, which contain a lot of B-spline or Bezier curves, are huge to download, so we decided to make only .dwg file formats available to you. Nowadays, almost all preparation software for pattern cutting uses .dxf and .dwg files equally, so you won't have any problems importing these patterns into laser cutter software.
All the patterns offered here have been hand-drawn. The amount of details surely indicates that this kind of job takes a rather long time to finish it successfully. For this reason, we ask that you comply with all the terms and conditions set out in the license (all patterns are under Creative Commons licenses).
