Step by step
Step 1: Laser cut the acrylic lamp
Used cutting parameters:
Blue: power: 100 %, speed 0.7 %, frequency 9000 Hz, Air Assist on
Red: power: 60 %, speed 1.0 %, frequency 9000 Hz, Air Assist on, z-offset 3 mm
Open the template file for this extraordinary design and send it to the laser. Select your favourite colour and start cutting the acrylic. The laser parameters may vary, as they depend on the machine being used and the available laser power.
To fit in the socket of the light bulb, emboss the edge with cutting lines. This is an alternative to engraving the area. By using the defocussing feature, the laser beam can be made wider forcing the cutting lines to overlap. This is how we can create the engraving effect using cutting lines.
Step 2: Assemble the acyrlic lamp
Assembling the acrylic lamp is easy. The assembling instruction helps.
