To best process the TroGlass Mirror material, add the 2.85" flexx lens to your Trotec laser and do the same in JobControl®.
Once that's done, add double-sided tape to the back of your TroGlass Mirror and place it in your Speedy Laser Engraver. Position the graphic for your rectangular panels, ensuring that they are cut from the section with the double-sided tape. The graphic also contains a green border; this is to suggest a long rectangle of scrap paper that will aid in affixing them to your display. After cutting your mirror, remove the film from the tape on each panel and adhere them to your scrap paper, using the graphic as a template, to ensure optimum spacing between each one.
Similarly, position the circular graphic on your TroGlass Mirror, this time ensuring that it is cut from a section free of double-sided tape.
When processing your material, we recommend the parameters below. However, they may vary depending on the laser machine used and available laser power.

We engraved our TroGlass Mirror using the fiber laser source, as it only engraves the mirror layer, and not the TroGlass itself. This technique gives the very best result when engraving this material.
The length of your scrap paper strip (circumference of the TroGlass Mirror circle) should be 610mm, with a height of 105mm.
