1) Draw logo using Adobe Illustrator
We draw our logo using Adobe Illustrator. The logo had to be round and the design had to be inside the circle.
We export in a directory into the USB with 3 different format: SVG, PDF and AI(Adobe Illustrator).
2) Importing logo in Corel Draw software
We went in the Lab Machines and we plug the Usb in the computer that is plugged with the Laser Cutter.
Using the software Corel Draw we import all our PDF logo into it in a single big document.
In order to print with a sigle pice of wood into the laser cutter, we set the size of each logo, in the software, to 50mm x 50mm.
3) Choose the cutting and the engraving of Logo
We remove with Corel software all the graphics that the laser cutter can handle, for instance we had to remove all the background or element to much small.
After removed all the graphics conflict we ungrouped the element of the logo for choose if a element had to be cut or engraved.
If a element had to be cut were filled black, while if had to be engraved we fill as red.
4) Switch on the Laser-Cutter
We open the door of the Laser-Cutter and we put inside a pice of wood.
The maximum dimension of the layer of wood must be 300mm x 600mm and 6mm of height.
The order of the button for switching on the machine is:
- Push button number 9 for switch on the laser
- Button 8 for disengage the head with the laser
- Button number 7 for set the 0 point (the margin of the wood layer)
- Button Green for the fumes (very important)
5) Printing the Logo in the wood
After press CTRL-P the laser start to print with the constraints that we set in the Corel Draw software.
The final result!
