Laser Engraved Brick

Find out how you can make a unique, individual present using nothing but a simple brick and your laser machine!


Preparation

Required Material:

  • Normal clay brick

Machine Used:

  • Speedy 360, 100 Watt
  • 1.5" lens
  • Vacuum table

You can create this sample on any machine from the Speedy series.

Tip:

We used a 1.5" lens because our design has many fine details. For simpler designs, you only need to use the 2" lens.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import Your Design

Create the design you want to engrave on the brick! Or, feel free to import our available template. Send the job to the laser machine using the driver settings below:

Step 2: Engraving Your Brick

Place the brick inside your Trotec laser machine and focus carefully on the surface of the material. Enter the parameter settings - these can vary depending on the laser machine you are using and its available laser power.
