A new process is described, that allows the cutting and scoring of paper with a laser diode. The laser cutting step comes after an inking step, in which the lines to be cut are ink-jetted with an ink that absorbs the laser radiation. This technology patented by CEA appears as an attractive low-cost technology for creating 3d personalized paper objects. Business models associated to that technology are discussed, and licensing opportunities are presented.
