Step 3: Process the Wood Sheets with Your Laser

Send the graphics to your laser, and proceed to cut and engrave the alder and walnut wood sheets.

To process the cup designs, ensure to select the "Relief" feature in the JobControl® print window. Select the "Optimized Geometries" and "Inner geometries first" functions to achieve better results when processing all sign components.

Tip

For the relief engravings, make sure that the job is not positioned on the joint of two glued wooden boards (the laser cannot erode the adhesive).


Step 4: Assemble the Sign

Remove the protective film from the smaller the sign components (i.e., lettering, cups, and teapot) . Stick these pieces to the appropriately marked positions on the alder wood sheet.
