Step 1: Create or import graphic files
Import the graphics template into your chosen design software. Feel free to edit them to suit. Simply print the file to your Trotec laser with the following suggested settings:
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
|Standard Job||500 dpi||none|
|Color||Optimised geometries, inner geometries first|
Step 2: Laser process TroCraft Eco
Place the TroCraft Eco sheet onto the bed of the new Trotec Speedy 400 with the cutting table in place. To improve the quality of the finished project, cover the remaining engraving area for cleaner cuts. The quality is further boosted with the new OptiMotion™ path planning function, which adjusts the cutting speed automatically to adapt to the geometry being cut. The parameters may vary depending on the laser machine used and the available laser power:
|Laser process||Color||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
|Passes||Air ASsist||Z-offset||Direction||Path planning||Advanced|
|1||ON||0mm||Top Down||-||High Quality|
Thanks to the new OptiMotion™ function, it's easy to determine the cutting parameters for the the new Speedy400. To find the right parameter, test at 100% speed. When the setting cuts through at the selected speed, this is the right setting to use for any projects using this material. This means the parameter will still offer the same quality cut result on angular shapes or detailed, small circular geometries. We reccomend that you compensate for the high speeds by adjusting the frequency (e.g. to 2000Hz or 3000Hz) to ensure a clean cut line.
Step 3: Assemble the rocking chair
Simply assemble the three components and you've created your own rocking chair model.
TroCraft Eco is manufactured from pure cellulose fiber, is fully biodegradable, and emission and additive free. It's suitable for a wide range of applications that require stability, flexibility and a stong and rigid structure. TroCraft Eco is an environmentally-friendly wood sheet perfectly suited to interior design, sustainable toys, model making and product and industrial design applications.
Design a complete interior e.g. for a doll house. You can also combine thicker TroCraft boards for furniture requiring more support.
