Laser-Cut Wooden Easter Egg Cup

Step by step guide

We have designed a charming Easter decoration for you: An eggcup made from wood in the shape of an Easter Bunny. The cart is used to hold the egg. We used alder wood to make the eggcup, but it will also work with conventional plywood; ideally, use poplar plywood when laser cutting.


Preparation

Required material:

Used Trotec Laser:

  • Speedy 300
  • 60 watts
  • 1.5 inch lens

Tips:

Use a cutting table. You can thus prevent beam reflections on the back of the material.


Step by Step

Step 1:

Open the "Easter bunny" file and send it to the laser. Start the engraving and cutting process with the power and speed parameters indicated below. (Obviously, these parameters might vary depending on what Trotec laser solution you are using and its available laser power.)

Black (engraving) - power: 25%, speed: 10%, frequency: 500dpi, Air assist on
Red (cutting) - power: 60%, speed: 1%, frequency: 1000Hz, Air assist on, correction: 10


Step 2:

Once you have cut out all the parts, you can assemble them. If you wish, you can also paint them before assembly.
