Laser Cut Screen Pattern Scaling. Here we demonstrate how we can scale a pattern differently to achieve A new effect and what happens to the price. The first screen has a larger scaling and in 2.5mm corten steel would cost $770. While the second screen has had the pattern scaled down dramatically and the price will now go up to $990. When considering the patterns' scale you need to take into consideration the viewing distance. For example if you were scaling a pattern to go on the side of a skyscraper you would not use the same scale that you would for a garden feature.
