Laser Cut Stand Assembled

This videoexternal link walks through a simple phone stand with interlocking pieces. It uses offset planes and mirroring. Each panel of the stand is made as a separate component so the design history stays clean and the pieces can be layed flat. This example uses a previous method of laying parts flat with joints. Now Fusion 360 uses the Modify > Arrange Tool to lay parts flat.

Incorporating Organic Forms in Laser Cutting

Laser cutters work on flat stock material that can only have curves when looking at it from a side profile. If multiple side profiles are arranged in a linear pattern and secured in place, organic forms can be make with a laser cutter. Starting wit ha simple organic form, Fusion 360 can be used to “slice” the 3D form into components that can be used for laser cutting.
