Easily craft a movable globe to use as a design element for all your laser applications. Below you will find instructions and a template download for your laser machine.
- 1/4 sheet of TroGlass Metallic in bright silver
- Speedy 360 flexx
- 100 Watt with 1.5" lens
- Vaccuum table with acrylic cutting grid
We created this sample on the Speedy 360. (This can only be completed on laser machines from the Speedy laser engraver series)
- To keep the kerf as small as possible, we used the 1.5" lens instead of a 2" lens.
- As material thickness can vary, we suggest measuring the thickness and adapt the recess if necessary.
Import our graphic to your program. Add your personalisation to the base plate or the outer ring. Send the job to the laser using the settings below.

Define the necessary parameters. They might vary depending on the machine and the available laser power.

We used the standard parameters for TroGlass optimised for quality.
When assembling the globe, begin with the ring that contains four outside notches (1) and insert it into the ring with two inner/outer notches (2). Then, place the ball into the ring that has two long connections (3). Now, place one of the smaller rings (4) onto the outer ring (5). Finally, insert the pre-assembled globe into the holder and fixate it to the opposite side with the second ring (4). Insert the globe into the stand (6) and you're ready to go!
