Step 1

Step 1: Design

Feel free to use our template that we have provided or, alternatively, you can create your own unique design. Send the job to the laser machine using the below settings:

Print settings:

Standard 500dpi none
Halftone Others
Ordered Dithering Optimised geometries, inner geometries first
trotec print settings leatherbelt
Step 2

Step 2: Laser process

The parameters will vary depending on the laser machine you are using and the available laser power.

Place the belt on the aluminium grid table with the belt buckle on the right side. The aluminium grid assists with the alignment of material. In order to optimise the engraving result, we recommend placing the belt parallel to the upper edge at a distance of approximately 1cm. It is important that you make sure the leather is straight.

Finally, cover the remaining working area in order to create a strong vacuum.

Step 3: Assembly

Once complete, remove the belt from the laser machine. Use a lightly moistened cloth to clean the surface of the leather.

Seeing as though leather is a natural product, this makes it an ideal material for laser engraving and cutting. You can alter the present design of the belt by adjusting the greyscale and engraving parameters. By experimenting with different colours and types of leather, you can also achieve unique and different results.
