Step 3: Laser process
Cut out all the elements from the various wooden boards.
For the cups, in the JobControl® print window assign the "Relief" process option, for everything else use the standard process option.
In addition, select "Optimized Geometries" and "Inner Geometries first" to get a nicer result.
For the relief engraving, make sure that the job is not placed over the joint of two glued wooden boards because the laser cannot erode the glue.
Step 4: Assembly
Remove the protective film of the adhesive on the parts and stick them in the appropriately marked positions on the base plate.
