The Best Ways to Cut Cardboard
This ought to be simple. Get out a decent pair of scissors, isn’t that so? No, wrong. Utilizing scissors is one of the most rankling techniques I have run over for cutting folded Cardboard. The particular case is for little, straight cuts. Here are some better ones:
Method 1: X-Acto blades
Utilizing an X-Acto blade or a better than average box blade is my go-to technique for cutting Cardboard. To begin with, follow out what you need to cut with a pencil, and after that score it with the blade. The best strategy is to make various (2-4) passes, cutting a little more profound each time, until you slice through. This is best for short cuts and detail work, despite the fact that I have utilized it to cut enormous pieces previously, yet be careful with hand issues. Likewise, attempt to decrease over a surface you wouldn’t fret getting a piece scratched, for example, another bit of Cardboard.
Technique 2: Hacksaw/Reciprocating Saws when all is said in done
For thicker Custom Cardboard Displays, for example, twofold layer cardboard, or enormous cuts, utilizing a saw works genuinely well and is the best, quickest, and most exact approach to cut. I locate a standard smaller than expected hacksaw is my preferred device for managing this stuff. However, any observed with a responding sharp edge (Scroll saw, band saw, jigsaw, hell, even a Sawzall) will work fine if you realize how to utilize them.
Strategy 3: Laser Cutters
I won’t broadly expound, as I have less involvement around there, yet for extremely complex structures or pleasant patterns, a laser shaper is the best decision. It can do all that you could do with any of the different devices I’ve referenced much quicker and significantly more precisely than you can by hand. The main thing to watch out for isn’t getting the Cardboard ablaze!
