For a wall decoration in a larger format (width approx. 60cm) the file is also available for free download. For this you need 6 pcs. TroCraft Eco in the plate thickness 3mm, 600 x 300m each. Adjust the parameter settings according to the thickness of the material.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import your design

Create your own design or use our template. Send the job to the laser with the settings below.

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500 dpi none
Halftone Others
Ordered Dithering optimized geometries,
inner geometries first

Step 2: Laser process TroCraft Eco

Now make the parameter settings. Our suggested parameters may vary depending on the laser machine used and the available laser power.

Place a TroCraft Eco plate in the laser device. Cover the remaining work area around the material to create vacuum. Then start the engraving and cutting process.

Laser Parameters:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
 Black Engrave CO2 9 50 500 ppi
Red Cut CO2  24 2 1000 Hz
Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Direction Advanced
1 ON - top down High quality
1 ON - - -

Step 3: Assembly

After the laser process, remove the individual parts from the laser unit. The parts are arranged in size or sequence from bottom right to top left.

Take the part of the elephant head without ear cut-outs and insert it at the cut-outs into the two grid elements, in each case into the rearmost slot. Proceed in sequence with all other parts of the elephant head in the same way. The order depends on the size of the individual parts - the smallest element is placed in the front slot.

Finally, turn the elephant head over and push the rectangular plate through the two slots on the back. This fixes the elements and at the same time serves as a suspension eyelet.
