Place the photo frame into your laser machine. It is important to ensure the engravable areas are positioned flat on the laserbed. This will allow the laser machine to easily engrave the wood and the glass in a single pass. Please note that a positioning mount is required due to the back leg of the frame. When the frame is finally positioned perfectly, focus on the glass.
You must calculate the z-Offset when you are engraving materials with height differences. In this case, set the offset value at 7mm because the height difference between the two materials is 7mm. Depending on what machine is being used and the laser power available, the parameters may vary.

Try using leftover acrylic or MDF as your distance holders. Just cut them into small circles or crosses.
