In this tutorial we will show you how to make a spooky Halloween lantern. For this lantern, we used TroGlass Color Gloss in Orange and Black. You will find the graphic file and the JobControl® laser parameters at the end of the page.
Use the 2" lens for best cutting results. Remove the protective foil on the back of the acrylic after cutting. This prevents the material from being scratched.
Step by Step
Step 1: Preparation
Import our graphic or create your own design. Remove the protective foil from the front of the acrylic and put the material into the laser. Send the job to the laser using the settings below.
Optimized geometries, inner geometries first
Step 2: Laser process
Define the necessary parameters. They might vary depending on the machine used and the available laser power.
Step 3: Assembly
Remove the protective foil from the back of the material. Clean the pieces with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Assemble the five pieces and use the acrylic glue to fix them. Your Halloween lantern is ready to scare your guests!
