Instructions

1. METHOD

LASERCUTTING 
Make your outer cutting lines black, so this is not the work surface or outer contour of the entire drawing. Make internal cutting lines red. Internal cutting lines falls within the outer contour, think of, for example, holes. 

LINE ENGRAVING
Instead of engraving a surface which is time consuming, it is also possible to cut lines with the laser quickly and with low power. It is a kind of drawing on the material. Make these lines green.

SURFACE ENGRAVING
Here, the laser moves as a printer and burns the layer in the material. As a result, it will recessed your layer in the material. Make surface engraving parts blue. 

2. CHECK YOUR DRAWING

Double lines, crossing lines and open contours should be removed from the drawing. Especially with surface engrave this is essential. Warning: when using text, please outline the text first.

3. FORMAAT

IMPORTANT: Save your drawings as .DXF (version 2000), .AI (version Illustrator 8) or as .EPS format.

The maximum size to lasercut is 1200 mm x 900 mm. For surface engraving there is a maximum size of 1150 mm x 900 mm.

For a lot of materials we have the standard sizes in stock, 300 x 200mm, 600 x 400mm en 900 x 600mm. Bigger sizes till 1200x900mm are possible to cut but should be deliverd by yourself.

4. MARGIN

Keep as a margin distance at least 5mm from the outside.

5. NESTING

Put your parts from the same material as close as possible togehter on the work surface to spare material. Keep a distance of 1mm between your parts.

6. TEMPLATES

We are working on more templates.

It is not mandatory to use a template. It is important to consider the standard material sizes, keep a margin edge of 5mm in your working surface and work in different layers with the right colors for cutting, line engraving and surface engraving.
