As usual, begin by importing our graphic and adapt it to your preferences, or you can use your own design. Using relief mode and the two gray levels in the graphic, you can engrave two different shades into the cork in a single process. To find out which grayscale achieves which colour change, you should first apply the grayscale matrix.
Send the graphic for the pinboard to your Trotec laser machine with the following settings:
|Process mode ||Resolution ||Cut line |
|Relief ||333dpi ||none |
|Halftone ||Others |
|Colour ||Enhanced geometries |
As the Pinboard is mostly viewed from a distance, you can use a coarser resolution of 333dpi. A higher resolution will not be seen by the human eye, allowing you to save a lot of time in the laser engraving process.
