Step by Step

Step 1: Import your design

You can either use our pre-made template or import your own design. The job can then be sent to the laser using the below settings.

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500 dpi none
Halftone Others
Ordered Dithering optimised geometries,
inner geometries first

Step 2: Laser cutting TroCraft Eco

The next stage is to create the laser parameters. These will differ depending on your laser machine and the available laser power.

Place one sheet of TroCraft Eco into the laser machine. Cover the remaining work area around the material to create a vacuum. You can now start the laser cutting and engraving process.

Red Cut CO2  24 2 1000 Hz

Step 3: Assembly

After the laser process, remove the individual parts from the laser machine. The parts are arranged in size or sequence from bottom right to top left.

Take the part of the elephant head without ear cut-outs and insert it at the cut-outs into the two grid elements, in each case into the rearmost slot. Proceed in sequence with all other parts of the elephant head in the same way. The order depends on the size of the individual parts - the smallest element is placed in the front slot.

Finally, turn the elephant head over and push the rectangular plate through the two slots on the back. This fixes the elements and at the same time serves as a suspension eyelet.
