Design a nice wooden garden decoration with your laser using the instructions and template below.
- Massive wood beam (we used a 30 x 6 x 6 in. beech beam)
- Trotec Speedy 400 flexx
- 120 Watts with 2.85" flexx lens
- We recommend a 2.5" lens if you are working with a CO2 laser instead of a Speedy flexx.
- Use an aluminum cutting grid table, a vacuum table or the standard engraving table
Import our design template into your graphics program and adapt it to the size of your wooden beam.
We made the engraving border of the graphic a little bit bigger than the actual size of the wood beam to make up for any size differences of the wood.
Send the laser job to the machine.
power 50%, speed 100%, 500 dpi, Air Assist on, z-offset 0.23'', HQ mode (advanced settings)
Select these two options in JobControl® to get the best cutting results.
- 500 dpi
- Black and white
Important: Laser parameters can vary depending on the machine and laser power you use.
To get the exact starting position, find the middle of the wood beam by measuring it and placing the laser there.
