Abstract

Typical personal fabrication using a laser cutter allows objects to be created from raw material and the engraving of existing objects. Current methods to precisely align an object with the laser is a difficult process due to indirect manipulations. In this paper, we propose a marker-based system as a novel paradigm for direct interactive laser cutting on existing objects. Our system, MARCut, performs the laser cutting based on tangible markers that are applied directly onto the object to express the design. Two types of markers are available; hand constructed Shape Markers that represent the desired geometry, and Command Markers that indicate the operational parameters such as cut, engrave or material.
