Two LP Christmas Engrave & Cut Projects

Posted by Alyssa Lau on


Here is a Christmas Bauble Cube project and a Christmas 3 Layered Bauble project for everyone!

Yes! Free! NO! You cannot sell it!

Project 1:
Christmas Bauble Cube


Images

Designed in Inkscape as well as importing some partial images.
Design work ~15 minutes.

Either download the images here or from the online repository linked in the about section or linked here: https://bit.ly/3VIOKsD

 


Settings

Material: Basswood Plywood 2mm

Settings: Gcode, Power-100, Depth-26, Pass-3

(Note: Your settings might well be different or you might need another pass depending on your wood)

Time: Total cut time 22 minutes (most complex side was 6 minutes).

Steps

1 - With the images (black), use Gcode mode and size to 65mm. They should be square.

2 - Bottom side has a hole so you can turn on and off a battery operated tea light if you put one in. Either tape or glue it to the bottom.

3 - Thread a string or other through the two holes in the top "star" side...

4 - Either tape or glue everything together from the inside, but leave one side untaped/ glued so that you can open it to add/ remove the battery operated tealight should you wish.

Notes

  • You can also see a mini clip of cutting in action and also the bits left over from cutting.
  • Don't forget to clean your cutting plate either! Look at the residue left behind and it smells!
  • Cut with the Android Laserpecker app.
