Does anyone have any experience with Cricut cutting machines? Do we think they could work for prototyping overlays? I believe they are most commonly used to cut vinyl (the raw material).
Max material thickness is 2.4mm on the Maker model. It’s alright within its constraints. I use one for making controller overlays from cardstock or vinyl, mostly. If you want some tactile depth or material options it could work, depending on what your expectations are.
It’s a nifty gadget for printing out a controller overlay and then having it cut out all the fiddly button & knob shapes for you.
Awesome. Exactly the answer I was looking for. Do you have any examples of overlays you have made with it?
Nice work! Thank you for sharing!
Any examples of Sensel overlays made with the Cricut?
Not yet for a tactile template. I’ve only used it to cut out overlay creator printouts to check for dimensional accuracy (it’s fine).
How did you glue the cutout overlays on the launchpad mini?
This looks very professional!
TY! The vinyl has its own adhesive backing. If I remember correctly I used Oracal 651 permanent vinyl, matte black. Good stuff. It’s been on the launchpad since 2017.
I can find Oracal 651 permanent vinyl, what is TY?
Sorry, TY = “thank you”.
I used the Oracal vinyl, nothing else. It has good adhesive.
Oh, in this case, of course
