Step by step

Step 1

Design

Import our template and adapt it to your requirements.

With "Create job" move the design to the "Prepare" screen. 

Tip: Before cutting measure the thickness of the acrylic and adapt the kerf accordingly.
With the used parameters and a 2" lens we calculate 0,2 mm kerf correction.
 

Step 2

Laser process

Place the job in the desired position and adapt the settings.
With the help of the lid camera place the job to the desired position and adapt the settings.

The laser parameters may vary depending on the type of laser machine and available laser power.
Send the job to the "Queue" for Laser processing.

Tip: engrave eighter the front of the acrylic or remove the mirror foil on the back with the CO2 laser. Alternatively you can use the fibre laser to remove the mirror foil.
