Laser-Cut Wooden
Easter Egg Cup

Step by step guide

Our charming Easter egg cup design will be loved by the whole family. Made from wood, the egg rests in the cart being held by the Easter Bunny. We have used alder wood for creating the egg cup but it can also be made with conventional plywood (poplar plywood is ideal for laser cutting).


Preparation

Required material:

  • 3 mm alder wood or poplar plywood
  • 1 Easter egg

Used Trotec Laser:

  • Speedy 300
  • 60 watts
  • 1.5 inch lens

Tips:

Use a cutting table. You can thus prevent beam reflections on the back of the material.


Step by Step

Step 1:

Open the file "Easter bunny" and send it to the laser. Start the engraving and cutting process with the power and speed parameters indicated below. (Obviously, these parameters might vary, depending on what Trotec laser solution you are using and the available laser power.)

Laser Settings

  • Black (engraving) - Power: 25 %, speed 10 %, resolution 500 dpi, Air assist on
  • Red (cutting) - Power: 60 %, speed 1 %, frequency 1000 Hz, Air assist on, correction 10

Step 2:

Once you have cut all parts you can assemble them. If you wish, you can also paint them before the assembly.
