Step 3: Begin laser processing the sign

Using your alder and walnut workpieces, laser cut the various elements of the sign out of your materials.

For the three different cups, assign the "Relief" process option in the JobControl® software. All other portions of the sign can use the standard process option.

Additionally, using the "Inner Geometries first" and "Optimized Geometries" will result in higher quality results.


When laser processing the relief engraving, verify that the job is not positioned over the joint of the two glued wooden boards because the glue cannot be eroded by the laser beam.
