We used a 50-watt Helix for this project and the settings are included below. Make sure to consult your owner’s manual to determine the correct speed, power and frequency settings for your Epilog Laser system.
First, determine which ornament you’d like to create. If you’re doing the 3D ornament, select those objects and send only that job to the laser.
NOTE: Since the thickness of the acrylic can vary, you can resize the interlocking notch space in the 3D design.
For the inlay style, select an acrylic color and send the job to the laser. Send it a second time using a different color acrylic and you can mix and match the colors!
Determine the speed and power settings for your machine and send the job to the laser!
To complete the 3D ornament, simply slide the pieces together in an interlocking fashion.
For the inlay ornament, place the cutout in the base and use a little super glue or acrylic glue around the edges to make sure the cut out stays in place.
