As a follow up to her 3D printed records. Amanda Ghassaei developed a more accessible way of fabricating records with a laser cutter. These records were cut on an Epilog 120 Watt Legend EXT to a theoretical precision of 1200dpi . The audio on the records has a bit depth between 4-5 bit and a sampling rate up to about 4.5kHz. So far she have managed to cut audio on wood, acrylic, and paper . A Processing sketch was created to generate the record cutting paths so that it can be modified for any song, material, cutting machine, record size, and turntable speed, find that code and more detailed info about the project on Instructables.
