What if it were possible to make wood flexible?
Actually, it is. When a laser cutter cuts a piece of wood in certain patterns, the wood itself becomes a living, or flexible, hinge. A living hinge makes it possible to fold wood into a box or a book cover or even a mobius strip.
When you know how to create living hinges on a laser cutter, you open up your students and fellow teachers to a whole new world of possible design challenges and project ideas that can be worked into curricular goals across subjects. The Dremel DigiLab laser cutter makes this project accessible, safe, and quick to implement.
