- TroLase Reverse gloss/gold 1.6mm
- waxed cord or a ribbon
- Use a honeycomb cutting table or an acrylic cutting grid table to avoid back reflections
Step 1: Design
Open the PDF template and send the design to the laser or create your own design and add a personal touch to the pendant.
Do you want to use a different material?
Note that the cutting gap has been optimised for TroLase Reverse 1.6mm. When using other materials it may be necessary to adapt the parameters and geometries.
Step 2: Laser Parameters
We used a Speedy 360 (60 watts power) laser machine to cut and engrave the material. We've sent the graphics with 600 dpi to the laser and used the following parameters:
Engraving: Power: 100% - Speed: 60% - Frequency: 1000 ppi - Air Assist: Ein - Z-Offset: 2.5mm
Cutting: Power: 50% - Speed: 0.6% - Frequency: 2000 Hz - Air Asisst: On
Additionally we activated the optimised geometries-function to achieve an even higher quality finish.
Step 3: Cleaning and assembling
To cut the stand, you can also use our template.
It may be necessary to clean the pieces and remove dust with a soft cloth. Then, simply assemble the pieces. There is no glue needed, the pieces fit together perfectly.
Step 4: Attach the ribbon
To assemble the piece of jewellery, take the small disk with the hole, pull the ribbon through and fix it with a knot. Cut the overhanging ends with scissors short. In the pictures below we have omitted the ribbon, so you can see the assembly better.
Step 5: First side part
Insert the smallest disk onto the connector piece.
Step 6: Insert discs
Attach all other disks to the connector part, paying particular attention to the order.
Step 7: Other side parts
As a final step, put the side panels around and the necklace is ready to use.
