First graders will love this colourful pen holder. We have worked with acrylic remnants in different colours, but you could also use alder or poplar plywood. This useful organizer will look good on any desk.
- 1/8" acrylic (a perfect way to use up leftover materials)
Trotec laser used
- Speedy 300
- 60 watts
- 2.5 inch lens
- Use the 2.5" lens
- Use a cutting table. This will prevent beam reflections on the backside of the material.
Open the "acrylic-penbox" file and send it to the laser. You can start cutting the acrylic immediately. The laser parameters depend on the machine used and the available laser power; they may therefore vary.
Recommended cutting parameters (red):
Power: 100%, Speed 0.8%, Frequency: 8500Hz, Air Assist: On
Once you have cut out all the parts, you can assemble the penbox.
