Laser engraved
Softdrink Glass

Step by step guide

Add value to inexpensive drinking glasses with decorations, names or designs. We have used the rotary attachment to add style to a 10 ¼ oz drinking glass (31 cl).


Preparation

Required material

  • 10 ¼ oz glass (31 cl)
  • Paper towel
  • Water
  • Sponge

Trotec laser used

  • Speedy 300
  • 25 watts
  • 2 inch lens

Tip

Use a 2 inch lens instead of a 1.5 inch lens to prevent cracking in the glass.


Step by Step

Step 1: Preparation

First, take a slightly moist paper towel. Preferably use a sponge or a spray bottle for moistening. Place the paper towel on the surface that you wish to engrave later. This will prevent splintering of the glass during the engraving process.


Step 2: Rotary Attachtment

Place the rotary attachment into the laser and insert it. Next, switch the laser on. You can now clamp the glass into the rotary attachment and focus on the surface. If you use a conical glass, tilt the rotary attachment until the engraving surface is positioned parallel to the work table.


Step 3: Used Laser Settings

Open the file "BBQ Glass" and send it to the laser. Make sure that the rotary attachment is enabled in the driver and that you have entered the correct diameter of the glass. You can now start the engraving process.

We have used the parameters indicated below for engraving the glass:

Engraving: Power: 100 %, Speed: 20 %, Resolution: 500 dpi 


Step 4: Cleaning

As soon as the engraving is complete, remove the paper from the glass.
