In this tutorial we’ll show you how to make a foldable snack bowl out of our new TroCraft Eco material, a sustainable and ecological laser cutting material.
- 1 sheet of TroCraft Eco 1.0mm
- Materials to cover the laser bed, for example paper.
Import our graphics and modify them to your preferences. Send the graphics for the snack bowl to your Trotec laser using the following print settings:
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
|color||Optimized geometries, internal geometries first|
Place the TroCraft Eco (which consists of pure cellulose fiber) on the honeycomb cutting table in your laser and cover the rest of the work area to create a stronger vacuum. The parameters can differ depending on the laser machine used and laser power available.
|Color||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
The inside of the snack bowl is the underside of the sheet.
If you want to see the engraving on the inside, cut the bowl out first (without engraving). In the second step, take out the cut bowl and place it upside down in the same position in the laser. Now set the engraving parameters to active and deactivate the two cutting parameters. This will later make the engraved pattern visible on the inside of the bowl.
Carefully bend the four scratched fold lines. Repeat this process until the edges fold well. In the next step, bend the four middle cut lines in the opposite direction. When a folded bowl shape is recognizable, then insert the fork into the two recesses. Now you can put the bowl down and it holds its shape.
The snack bowls made of TroCraft Eco are perfect for summer garden parties. Personalize your bowls by engraving your company or club logo.
TroCraft Eco is a sustainable and 100% ecologically degradable product. This environmentally-friendly product is therefore ideally suited for food applications. Due to its stability, flexibility and durable formability, TroCraft Eco can be used for individual, modern designs such as snack bowls.
