Step by Step

Step 1: Design

Import the PDF file into CorelDraw and select the desired graphic (see the tabs below the working area in CorelDraw). Scale it to fit your acrylic piece (you will need a front and a back to fit on the sheet).

Step 2: Used laser parameter

Engraving: Power: 35% - Speed: 10% - Frequency: Auto - Air Assist: ON
Cutting: Power: 30% - Speed: 0.1% - Frequency: 8,500 Hz - Air Assist: ON

Step 3: Front and back parts

Put the honeycomb cutting table into the laser and laser cut and engrave the front and back part out of the acrylic. If you use our ship design, you will find them on the second page of our PDF template. 
To cut out the stand, you can also use our template.

Step 4: Linking parts and lights

You need a few linking pieces to attach the front and back of the ship together with a space in the middle. Apply double-sided adhesive tape between two sheets of acrylic. Do not remove the protection film yet and cut out the linking pieces.
Take the linking pieces out of the laser, remove the protection film and apply double-sided adhesive tape. Now you can stick the two ship halves with the linking pieces together. As a last step, put the lights around the linking pieces and affix the ship to the stand.

Your night light is now ready to use!
