Epic Roundup of 150 Projects to Inspire Your Laser Cutter – and You! | via @Ponoko

From the TJBot design files to Selfie Bot, from wedding invitations to wearable accessories, Ponoko have done an incredible job rounding up 150 laser cutter projects to get you thinking about what to make with lasers. Whether you’re looking for your first project’s design files or are an experienced operator of focused laser technology for the purposes of cutting, boring, and engraving, you’ll want to check out the full list for lots of inspirational ideas.

Whether you’re new to making and looking for a place to start or you’re a seasoned maker who wants to expand in new directions or get a fresh take on your current path, do we have some laser cutter projects inspiration for you.

There’s so much opportunity for making amazing laser cut products (and profiting from them, too!). But where to start?

To spark your creativity, we’ve scoured the best Etsy shops, Instagram feeds, Pinterest boards and blog posts from all over the web to find the coolest custom laser cut design ideas from top designers. It took some doing, but we narrowed the list down to 105 of our faves. Whew!

With so many ideas, we wanted to make this post easy to navigate and refer back to. So we divided the story into two sections.

The first section contains 55 laser cutter projects organized into popular product categories. If you’re a maker with an affinity for a particular product, this section is just for you.

The second half of the story features 50 laser cutting ideas divided into 10 groups based on top-selling materials. So if you love a certain material and want to expand what you’re making, scroll down and get inspired.
