Step by Step

Step 1: Design

Use our template “christmas_decoration”. Please pay attention to the thickness of the material and adjust the insertion slots for the two little trees accordingly if necessary. Now import the pdf file into Ruby in the “”Manage”” area. In order to achieve a better depth effect when engraving TroGlass clear, this is done mirror-inverted on the reverse side. However, if you want to engrave the material on the top side (e.g. for better readability on TroGlass satins), then mirror the entire file. With “Create job” you then send the design to the “Prepare” area.

Step 2: Laser process

Remove the film on the top of your material, the protective film on the back is left on the TroGlass. Now place the acrylic sheet in the laser machine. Cover the rest of the work surface well for the best possible vacuum. Place the job in the appropriate position and make all adjustments. Our suggested parameters may vary depending on the machine used and the available laser power. Then send the job to the laser by clicking on the “”Push to Laser”” control panel. Then start the laser process.

Step 3: Assembly

After the laser process, you can wipe the material surface with a soft cloth if necessary. Now remove all parts from the laser. The two little tree stands are put together with the matching base plate for each. All remaining elements can be prepared for hanging with a decorative ribbon.+
