Step 1: Print
Begin by importing our template, adjusting to your requirements as required. The transparent material has been cut to the size of the picture frame in this example. The printed design on the back of the ADA using a UV-printer.
As an alternative to this you can print full sheets and then use the JobControl Vision laser software to cut them down.
Step 2: Designing the flower
Import our template and adjust this to your requirements. It is important to pay attention to the thickness of the lines, as if they are too thin they can break easily. Use the driver settings below to send your job to the laser engraving machine.
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|

Step 3: Laser cutting
Depending on your laser machine and the laser power, these parameters will vary.
|Colour||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
Step 4: Assembly
Put the printed sheet with the Passepartout into the picture frame and stick the silhouette of the flower to the front. Your decoration is now ready for display.
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.
