Step by Step

Step 1: Import/create print & laser file

Feel free to create your own artwork for this sign, or simply use our template. Next, you'll need to upload the job to the laser with the settings below.

Print settings

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500dpi none
Halftone Others
Color Optimized geometries, inner geometries first, minimize to job size

Step 2: Laser process

Next we're going to implement our parameter settings. To keep things simple, we'll use the same cutting settings for all three TroGlass panels. Our suggested parameters may vary depending on the laser machine used and the available laser power.

The blue cutting lines on the white base plate serve as a marker for the correct positioning when gluing the neon-colored elements and should be placed in front of the red cutting parameters if possible. In this way an optimal cutting result can be achieved.

Place the first TroGlass plate in the laser unit. Leave the protective foil on the material. Close the device and start the appropriate cutting process. Then cut the other two plates as well.

Laser parameters - TroGlass 3mm:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Blue Cut CO2 10 1 1000
Red Cut CO2 500 0.2 5000
Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Direction Advanced
1 ON 3 - -
1 ON - - -

Step 3: Assembly

Once you've finished your job on the laser, remove all cut parts from the laser machine.

You can also now remove the protective film from the top of all your cut pieces that you will be using for the sign.

Then remove the protective film from the back of the coloured elements and stick on the individual parts one after the other. The marking lines on the white base plate serve as orientation.


Why should I use TroGlass Neon?

TroGlass Neon colours are bold and eye-catching, they are available in 4 birght colors: pink, yellow, orange and green. These four refreshing neon colors draw attention and thus become the highlight of every product.

TroGlass Neon combines the advantages of opalescence and striking fluorescence in one product. However, it is not only the appearance but also the optimum properties such as excellent resistance to outdoor weathering that make this product attractive.

Inspiration

In the file you will also find a template for a larger sign with an outer diameter of about 59cm. So you can make the sign in two different sizes. Of course you can vary the colours according to your wishes!

TroGlass Neon stands out particularly well against a dark background - making the sign a great eye-catcher!
