Laser engraved door mat

Step by step instructions

You can use your Trotec laser to customize conventional door mats. Create fun designs or personalize them to make unique gifts.


Preparation

Material required:

  • single-color door mat

Machine used:

  • Speedy 400, 120 watts
  • 4" lens
  • Vacuum table

 You can use any machine of the Speedy laser engraver series. (Just be certain you are using a door mat that will fit in your bed size.)

Tip:

Due to the coarse structure of the door mat, we used a lens with long focal length to compensate the unevenness of the material.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import design

Decide on what design you wish to use for your door mat. You can make your own design or import our template.

Send the job to the laser using the driver settings below.

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 333 dpi none
Halftone Others
Color -

Tip:

You can use a lower resolution to reduce production time. Since a door mat is typically viewed from the distance, the resolution does not need to be as high. 


Step 2: Engraving the door mat

Put the door mat into your Trotec laser. Determine and adjust the parameter settings. The recommended settings can differ depending on the laser machine used and laser power available.

Laser parameters engraving:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
black Engrave CO2 80 100 500
Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Advanced
1 ON 4mm -

Tip:

Since a door mat is typically viewed from the distance, a resolution of 333 dpi is sufficient.
