Laser engraving

Laser cutters have been around for a number of years primarily being used in Industrial Design and Architectural model building. More recently artists and printmakers have found numerous applications for their use. Laser woodblock printing and cut/engraved paper, are now widely becoming adapted technologies in printshops. The laser allows the artist to produce a very fine line that can incorporate photo technologies as well as detailed pencil and charcoal type drawings. In effect this allows a greater tonality and gray scale effects instead of just the high contrast image known from relief printing. The type of wood also allows qualities of imaging be it a smooth surface or ones with beautiful grain that adds to the esthetic of traditional woodblock printing.

激光雕刻

激光雕刻机已经存在多年,主要用于工业设计和建筑模型建设。最近,艺术家和版画制作人发现了多种应用方式。激光木版雕刻印刷和切割/雕刻纸张现在已广泛成为版画作品中的改进技术。激光雕刻机允许艺术家制作出非常精细的线条,可以结合照片技术以及精确的铅笔和木炭笔作品进行创作。实际上,这允许了更大的色调和灰度效果,而不仅仅拘泥于凸版印制版画中已知的高对比度图像。木材的类型还可以改变成像的质量,无论是光滑的表面还是具有漂亮纹理的表面,都增加了传统木版印刷的美感。
