Creating flexibility where there is none? Just another thing you can do with an Epilog Laser system. Here we’ll walk you through the steps of creating the “living hinge” – a laser-cut pattern that allows hardwoods and other non-flexible materials to bend with ease.
Using this technique we created a personalized book cover that easily conforms to a variety of sizes. Depending on the thickness and composition of your material, you can modify the living hinge design to fit a variety of materials such as cardstock, veneers, plastics and much more!
The original living hinge file that inspired this version was created by SNIJLAB of the Netherlands. Visit the thingiverse website to view their creation.
