Step 2: Laser cutting and laser engraving the LaserPaper
Position your paper sheets in your Trotec Laser, covering the rest of the working surface with plain paper to create a strong vacuum. The required parameters will likely vary depending on the laser machine you're using and the power available.
We used an adjusted version of the standard laser parameters from JobControl optimized for quality. You may need to adjust the settings depending on your laser and the power available. The material parameters of JobControl can be downloaded from www.troteclaser.com
Step 3: Assembly
Fold the blue engraved LaserPaper along the scored edges, and stick the red LaserPaper into the center.
