Unique Christmas tree with decorations

Step by Step instruction

This unique and beautiful Christmas tree will be the centre of attention for any area (lobby, shops, home). 


Preparation

Required material:

  • 3 sheets of 3mm TroGlass 24'' x 48'' (Any color can be used. For the decoration you can use remaining material) 
  • String or fishing line to hang decorations

Machine used:

  • SP500
  • 60 Watt
  • 3.75" lens
  • Slat cutting table or Acrylic cutting grid table

For this sample we recommend using any laser machine from the SP laser cutter series.

Important:

Each laser machine is unique, so you may have to adjust the slots to suit the lens you are using to get a nice friction fit.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import /create design template

Make your own design or import our template. Send it to the laser with the recommended laser parameters. The parameters might vary depending on the machine used and the available laser power.

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500 dpi None
Halftone Others
Black & White Enhanced Geometries Inner - Geometries First

Step 2: Laser process

Place the material in your laser and cover the rest of the table to increase the exhaust power. You will need 6 side parts (2 on each sheet) and 4 disks. Remove the protective foil after the cutting is complete.

Step 3: Post-processing

To assemble the Christmas tree, friction fit each section into the discs. Place the largest disc at the base. Note: the disc at the top of the tree is the one with two extra slots for securing the star on top of the tree.
