TroLase Reverse gloss/gold 1.6mm, waxed cord or a ribbon

Trotec laser used

  • Speedy 360

Step by Step

Step 1: Design

Open the PDF template and send the design to the laser or create your own design and add a personal touch to the pendant.

Do you want to use a different material?

Note that the cutting gap has been optimized for TroLase Reverse 1.6mm. When using other materials it may be necessary to adapt parameters and geometries.


Step 2: Laser Parameters

We used a Speedy 360 (60 watts power) to cut and engrave the material. We've sent the graphics with 600 dpi to the laser and used the following parameters:

Laser Settings

Engraving: Power: 100% - Speed: 60% - Frequency: 1000 ppi - Air Assist: On -
Z-Offset: 2.5mm
Cutting: Power: 50% - Speed: 0.6% - Frequency: 2000 Hz - Air Asisst: On

Additionally we activated the optimized geometries-function to achieve an even higher quality.


Step 3: Cleaning and assembling

It may be necessary to clean the pieces and remove dust with a soft cloth. After that you can easily put the pieces together. There is no glue needed, because the pieces fit together perfectly.

Tip:

To cut the stand, you can also use our template.


Step 4: Attach the ribbon

To assemble the piece of jewelry, take the small disk with the hole, pull the ribbon through and fix it with a knot. Cut the overhanging ends with scissors short. 

In the pictures below we have omitted the ribbon, so you can see the assembly better.


Step 5: First side part

Now insert connect one side part of the disc.


Step 6: Insert discs

Attach all other disks to the side part and pay attention to the order.


Step 7: Other side parts

As a final step, put the other side parts around and the necklace is ready to use.
