In this tutorial, we show you how you can upgrade stainless steel cutlery using a laser. The annealing process keeps the surface intact and the pieces can be cleaned easily.
- Stainless steel cutlery
- Lego to position the items in the machine
- Speedy 360 flexx
- 30 W fiber laser
- 2.85" lens
- vacuum table
You can use any other machine of the Speedy Flexx laser engraver series.
If you position the material into the machine, make sure that the surface is as flat as possible (parallel to the table)
Step by step
Step 1: Design
Import our template or create your own design. Send the job to the laser using the following printer driver settings.
Printer driver settings:
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
Step 2: Laser process
Determine and set the parameters. The parameters can differ depending on the laser machine used and laser power available.
we used Lego bricks. They are incredibly practical if you have to compensate different heights or define exact positions. Especially when the production of a template does not make sense

Step 3: Post-processing
No post-processing is necessary. The cutlery is still dishwasher-proof.
