Step by Step

Step 1: Laser cut the acrylic lamp

Open the template file and send it to the laser. Select your favorite color, and then start cutting the acrylic. The laser parameters may vary, depending on the machine used and the available laser power. 

To fit in the socket of the light bulb, emboss the edge with cutting lines. This is an alternative to engraving the area. Thanks to the defocusing, the laser beam is wider and the cutting lines overlap. That's how the "engraving effect" can be done with cutting lines.

Used cutting parameters:

Blue: power: 100 %, speed 0.7 %, frequency 9000 Hz, Air Assist on
Red: power: 60 %, speed 1.0 %, frequency 9000 Hz, Air Assist on, z-offset 3 mm
