Step by step

Step 1

Step 1: Import design

Create your own design or simply import our template. We scanned our agate disk to adapt our design directly to the shape of the stone. Send the job to the laser using the driver settings as following:

Print settings

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 1000 dpi none
Halftone Others
Color  

TIP:

For a perfect result of our detailed graphics we used the highest possible resolution of 1000 dpi for our engraving job.

Step 2

Step 2: Laser Engraving the agate

Position the agate disk into your Trotec Laser engraver and focus on the surface. If the stone is rounded, focus on the average value of the laser engraving area. Create the material parameter settings. The parameters vary depending on the laser machine and laser power.

Tip:

Due to the +1.5 mm z-offset (out of focus) the contrast is higher than engraving in focus.

Step 3

Step 3: Post-processing and assembly

The pendant does not have to be cleaned after engraving. Add a leather band or a pin and your personalised agate pendant is ready.
