Info:

  • To create this sample we used the standard laser parameters from JobControl optimised for quality.
  • To download the material parameters from JobControl visit www.troteclaser.co.uk

Step 3: Post-processing

Thread the bands through the laser cut holes and frame the sign. To finish, add bank notes to the band. You can also personalise the frame as you like.


Inspiration

  • If you use a frame made from laserable material such as wood or anodised aluminium, you can laser engrave a nice design onto the frame as well.
  • You can use a dark TroGlass material instead of TroLase Metallic for this sample. The fiber laser of a Speedy flexx laser machine creates great effects on this material.
  • This sample can also be used as a gift for other occasions including birthdays.
