Learn how you can engrave a piece of agate with your Trotec laser machine.
- Agate disks
- Leather band
Laser Machine used
- Speedy 360
- 100 Watt with 1.5" lens
- Vacuum table
You can use any laser machine from the Speedy laser engraver series for this sample.
To engrave a filigree design, we recommend using a 1.5" lens for this sample.
Step 1: Import design
Import our template or create your own design. To adapt our design precisely to the shape of the stone, we scanned our agate disk. Use the driver settings below and send the job to the laser machine .
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
We used the highest possible resolution of 1000 dpi for our laser engraving job for a perfect outcome of our detailed graphics .
Step 2: Engraving the agate
Position the agate disk into your Trotec Laser machine and focus on the surface. Focus on the average value of the engraving area, if the stone is rounded. Create the material parameter settings. Depending on laser machine and available laser power, the parameters can vary.
Laser Parameters engraving
|Color||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
|1||on||+ 1.5 mm||high quality|
The contrast is higher than engraving in focus due to the +1.5 mm z-offset (out of focus).
Step 3: Post-processing and assembly
You do not have to clean the pendant after engraving. Add a pin or a leather band and your personalized agate pendant is complete.
