Step 1: Design
Import our graphics and proceed to modify them to suit your preferences. Then, send them to your Trotec laser machine using the following print settings:
|Process Mode||Resolution||Cut Line|
|Colour||Optimised Geometries, Inner Geometries First|
Step 2: Laser Processing: TroCraft Eco
Place the TroCraft Eco (consisting of pure cellulose fibre) onto the honeycomb cutting table within your laser machine. Then, cover the rest of the working area with leftover materials to create a stronger vacuum effect. Pease note that the parameters may vary depending on the machine used and its available laser power.
|Colour||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
Remember: the inside of the snack bowl is the underside of the TroCraft Eco sheet.
If you want to see the engraving from the inside of the bowl, cut it out first (without the engravings). In the second step, remove the cut bowl from the machine and place it upside down in the same position. Now, activate the engraving parameters, and deactivate the two cutting parameters. This will allow the engraved pattern to be visible on the inside of the bowl.
Step 3: Bending
Carefully bend the four scratched 'fold' lines. Repeat this process until the edges are all easily movable. Next, bend the four middle cut lines in the opposite direction. When a slight bowl shape is recognisable, insert the fork into the two small recesses. If done correctly, the bowl should now hold its shape.
This snack bowl is perfect for summer garden parties, get-togethers and work functions. You can even personalise the bowl with a logo or name.
TroCraft Eco is a sustainable, ecological and bio-degradable product. The environmentally-friendly material is therefore ideally suited for food applications. Due to its stability, flexibility and durability, TroCraft Eco can be used for individual, modern and rustic designs, and a snack bowl is a perfect example of this.
