First experiment in lasercutting leather
Another MuMaLab member demonstrated to me how easy it is to laser cut leather. I love leather as a material and wanted to try it myself.
This is my first try, a protective mobile sleeve made out of a thin, soft leather in blue-green. I designed the pattern in OpenSCAD and made it able to adapt to different phone sizes.
I ordered the material of eBay and made the cut on the Lasercutter in the MuMaLab.
The trick is to cut the holes with the cutter as well. That way, you don't need a sewing machine (or the skill to use it) just a needle and some time. I took about 30 minutes to sew the parts together.
You can find the file on Thingiverse. Or if you want to replicate my effort, go to Instructables.
