How to Apply
Things to prepare
You may submit a JPEG (RBG), PNG, or GIF image. It must have a resolution of 72dpi and be no more than 660 pixels wide.
Category A: Mac Fab
Download the template here and create your design.
*Note: The laser cutter engraves the coating on the surface, not the metal. Your design will appear white when it is laser cut. The Apple logo cannot be cut by the laser cutter.
Category B: Free Fab
Please prepare a single JPEG (RBG), PNG, or GIF with a rendering of your completed fab idea. Also, prepare blueprint-like diagram(s) showing the pieces that will be cut and engraved, if possible.
2. Work title
In either English or Japanese.
*For the category B: Free Fab, if you have sub images and blueprint-like diagrams showing the pieces that will be cut and engraved, please name the diagram data “(your work title)/diagram”.
3. Material information and explanatory text.
Up to 300 English words explaining the materials to be used and the intent of the work.
*For the category B: Free Fab, if you have external links that show the pieces which will be cut and engraved, please enter the links here. If you don’t upload a blueprint-like diagram for your work, please explain how to make it in details.
The laser-cutter can cut materials up to 813x457mm. The thickness it can cut depends on the material.
・Acrylic: up to 10mm (according to in-store tests)
・Plywood: up to 12mm (according to in-store tests)
The precision at cross-sections and start and end points will be lower with thicker materials, so we recommend a maximum thickness of 5mm for both acrylic and plywood.
For further information, see the FabCafe FAQ (Japanese only).
