Inspiration

TroLase ADA Signage is a solid, single-layer acrylic-based material. The main applications the material is used for are Braille signage and the production of tactile signage, as well as model making and 3D signage. This tutorial also showcases how the material can be used for filigree artistic applications.

An alternative to printing in this tutorial is to use other materials to bring colour into the art. For example, TroLase engraving laminates or woods can be put inside the flower.
