wooden egg cup laser cut

Laser-Cut Wooden
Easter Eggcup

Step by step guide

We have designed a charming Easter decoration for you: An eggcup made from wood in the shape of an Easter Bunny. The cart is used for holding the egg. We used alder wood for making the eggcup. But it will also work with conventional plywood; ideally use poplar plywood for laser cutting.


Preparation

Required material:

  • 3 mm alder wood or poplar plywood
  • 1 Easter egg

Used Trotec Laser:

  • Speedy 300
  • 60 watts
  • 1.5 inch lens

Tips:

Use a cutting table. You can thus prevent beam reflections on the back of the material.


Step by Step

Step 1:

Open the file "Easter bunny" and send it to the laser. Start the engraving and cutting process with the power and speed parameters indicated below. (Obviously, these parameters might vary, depending on the used machine and the available laser power.)

Laser Settings

  • Black (engraving) - power: 25 %, speed: 10 %, frequency: 500 dpi, Air assist on
  • Red (cutting) - power: 60 %, speed: 1 %, frequency: 1000 Hz, Air assist on, correction: 10

Step 2:

Once you have cut all parts you can assemble them. If you wish, you can also paint them before the assembly.
