Anodised aluminium for box Acrylic for jig
- 1000 ppi supports very detailed engravings
- Use a jig for easy positioning
Step 1: Laser cut the acrylic jig
First, open the template (which you can download here for the Speedy machines, and here for the ProMarker) then send it to the laser.
Page 1 of the template file is the engraving for the outer surface of the box, page 2 shows the calendar and page 3 contains the jig. The laser parameters you use for cutting your jig will depend on the laser machine you have and the laser power available to you.
These are the settings we used:
Red: power 80 %, speed 0.60 %, frequency 5000 Hz, Air Assist on
Step 2: Laser engrave the business card box
Use your newly created jig for better positioning of the material, and start the engraving your box.
We recommend these parameters:
Black: power 30 %, speed 30%, frequency 1000 ppi, Air Assist on
