Preparation

Used material:

Machine used:

  • Speedy 360
  • 80 watts
  • 2" lens
  • white acrylic gutting grid

This sample can be made on any machine from the Speedy laser engraver series.


Step by Step

Step 1: Print

Start by importing the provided template. Feel free to change the design to your requirements. We also cut the transparent material to size of the picture frame in advance and printed the design to the back of the ADA with an UV-printer.

Another option is to print whole sheets of material with registration marks and cut it afterwards using the JobControl Vision camera system.


Step 2: Design flower

By this step, you should have already uploaded the templated and made any necessary changes. Be sure to pay extra attention to the thickness of the lines - if they are too thin they become quite fragile and can break quite easily. Send the job to the laser using the driver settings below.

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500dpi none
Halftone Others
Color Optimized Geometries, Inner Geometries First

Step 3: Laser process

Remember that your laser parameters could vary depending on the type of laser machine and available laser power.

Laser Parameters:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Red Cut CO2 38 0.8 1000
Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Direction Advanced
1 ON - - -

Step 4: Assembly

For the final step, place the printed sheet with the picture side facing up, into the picture frame. You'll then need to stick the silhouette of the flower on the front of the picture to complete it.


Inspiration

TroLase ADA Signage is a solid, single-layer acrylic-based material used mainly for Braille and tactile sign making, model making and 3-dimensional signs. This abstract floral decoration shows that TroLase ADA Signage is also perfectly suited for filigree artistic applications.

Instead of printing you can easily bring color into you design with different materials. For example cut acrylic, TroLase or wood and put it inside the flower.
