In this tutorial we will show you how to make a spooky Halloween lantern. For this lantern, we used TroGlass Color Gloss in Orange and Black. You will find the graphic file and the JobControl® laser parameters at the end of the page.
- 1/4 sheet of TroGlass Color Gloss black or orange
- Acrylic glue
Use the 2" lens for best cutting results.<br/> Remove the protective foil on the back of the acrylic after cutting. This prevents the material from being scratched.
Step 1: Preparation
Import our graphic or create your own design. Remove the protective foil from the front of the acrylic and put the material into the laser.<br/> Send the job to the laser using the settings below.
|Optimized geometries, inner geometries first
Step 2: Laser process
Define the necessary parameters. They might vary depending on the machine used and the available laser power.
Step 3: Assembly
Remove the protective foil from the back of the material. Clean the pieces with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Assemble the five pieces and use the acrylic glue to fix them. Your Halloween lantern is ready to scare your guests!
