Happy Easter – Laser-Cut Wooden Easter Eggcup

A wooden eggcup as an Easter present

We have a cute Easter decoration for you to create this Easter courtesy of Trotec Laser: An eggcup made from wood in the shape of an Easter Bunny! Alder wood was used to make the eggcup, but it will also work with conventional plywood; ideally use poplar plywood for laser cutting.

Required Material:
  • 3 mm alder wood or poplar plywood
  • 1 Easter egg

Suitable machines:
Speedy 100, Speedy 300,
Speedy 500

Trotec laser used:
Speedy 300, 60 watts, 1.5 inch lens

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

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.)

  • 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.
