|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
|Black & White||-|
Step 2: Laser processing
Place the desk pad onto your laser engraving table and position the top left corner into the 0/0 point of the engraving table, then positon your job into the 0/0 point as well.
|Color||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
- Due to the z-offset of 2 mm, the laser beam will be defocused and the lines will appear thicker and more intense than they do when in focus.
Step 3: Post-processing
As a natural product, leather tends to burn during laser engraving or cutting; as well as producing a particular smell. The cutting edges may also turn dark and stain during the process. Many types of leather can easily be cleaned, but it is important to test the cleaning solution on a test piece. It is worth trying to remove the smoke residue with a dry cloth. Should any residue remain try cleaning the leather with a damp cloth or an alcohol-based cleaner.
If the desk pad is a gift, you can add the name of the recipient to your design.
