Step 1: Prepare Your Files and Process the Clear TroLase ADA Signage
Import the template and provided, or feel free to create a design using your graphic software. If you decide to use a UV-printer for this application, we suggest isolating your flower outline and creating a separate file. This step will prevent the outline from unintentionally getting printed onto the transparent TroLase ADA Signage sheet.
We cut the TroLase ADA Signage to fit the picture frame in advance. We then used a UV-printer to print the colored design onto the back of the sheet.
Alternatively, you can print whole sheets of material with registration marks and cut it afterward using the JobControl Vision camera system.
Step 2: Flower Design
Begin with the outline file, and send the job to the laser using the driver settings below.
Note: Pay attention to the thickness of the flower lines. If they are too thin they can break easily!

Step 3: Process the Black TroLase ADA Signage Sheet
Place the black TroLase ADA Signage sheet into the laser. To keep the material from moving while being processed, we recommend covering the remaining work area with material to strengthen the laser's vacuum.
The laser parameters may vary depending on the type of laser machine and available laser power.

Step 4: Assembly
Put the passe-partout on top of the clear TroLase ADA Signage sheet and into your frame.
Remove the film from the adhesive backing of the black flower cutout and fasten the cutout to the center of the clear TroLase ADA Signage. Assemble the frame, and your design is ready to be displayed!
TroLase ADA Signage is a sturdy, single-layer acrylic-based material ideal for Braille, tactile sign making, model making, and 3-dimensional signage.
Feel free to make this design your own by using other colors, designs, and Trotec materials.
