Make a personalized pen holder for your desk using our step-by-step instructions and template below. We used Trotec engraving materials for our sample.
- 1 sheet solid wood maple 11 3/4 x 4 x 1/4"
- Material to cover the engraving table (e.g. paper)
- Pens and business cards
Check the thickness of the material before you start and adapt the kerf if necessary.
Step 1: Create and import design template
You can create your own design for the pen holder, use our template, or adjust our template as you wish.
Don't forget to adapt the diameter of the holes depending on the pens you want to insert.
Send the job to the laser using the following print settings:
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
|color||enhanced geometries, inner geometries first|
Step 2: Laser Process
Next adjust the parameter settings in your laser software. The suggested parameters can differ depending on the machine used and the laser power:
|Color||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
|Creasing: red||cut CO2||7||1||1000|
|Cutting: red||cut CO2||100||1.6||1000|
We used the standard parameters from JobControl® for 5 mm solid maple.
Step 3: Cleaning and assembly
Remove the wood from the laser and clean it with a damp cloth. To assemble it, simply put together the two parts.
Now this desk accessory is ready to be sold to your customers and filled with pens or business cards.
