Step by Step

Step 1: Import/create print & laser file

The first step is to either create your own design or import our pre-made template. Then send the job to the laser with the settings below. 

Print settings

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500dpi none
Halftone Others
Colour Optimised geometries, inner geometries first, minimise to job size

Step 2: Laser cutting

The next step is to create the parameter settings. Use the same settings when laser cutting each of the neon sheets. Please note that depending on your laser machine and the available power the settings will differ. 

The blue laser cutting lines on the white base plate serve as a marker for the correct positioning when glueing the neon-coloured elements and should be placed in front of the red laser cutting parameters if possible. This allows an optimal laser cutting result to be achieved.

Place the first TroGlass plate in the laser machine. Leaving the protective foil on the material, close the device and start the laser cutting process. Repeat for the other acrylic sheets. 

Laser cutting parameters - TroGlass 3mm:

Colour Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Blue Cut CO2 10 1 1000
Red Cut CO2 500 0.2 5000
Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Direction Advanced
1 ON 3 - -
1 ON - - -

Step 3: Assembly

After the laser cutting process, remove all cut parts from the laser machine.

You can now remove the protective foil from the top of all cut elements.

Then remove the protective film from the back of the coloured elements and stick on the individual parts one after the other. The marking lines on the white base plate serve as your guide
