Laser Cut Lexus

Inspirational Geek

Laser cutting has been around for a while as a manufacturing technique for a range of materials, but I’m not sure I’ve seen anything as impressive as this created using that method. Especially out of cardboard!

With a somewhat tongue-in-cheek approach on the quest for the ultimate eco-friendly car Lexus have produced 1,700 sheets of intricately laser-cut cardboard.

The resulting model is a 1:1 scale version their new IS model as a “celebration of the human craftsmanship skills that go into every car they make”.

The model was produced in the UK by Laser Cut Works and Scales & Models who converted a 3D computer model into numbered cardboard slices and then assembled the entire model by hand.  The glue used for each 10mm layer took 10 minutes to set after every application.  That’s a lot of time waiting for glue to dry!
