Begin by importing our template into your preferred graphics program and adapting it as required. If you have your own design, you can use this instead.
Load your engraving laminate onto your laser machine bed. Begin laser cutting the top and bottom of the template. Once you have finished laser processing clean the engraving laminate components and combine the two parts to create the finished jig.
Continue to use your diagram and insert text into the graphic.
Important: Ensure that you have sent the whole graphic to the laser machine.
In this part of the process red is no longer used as the laser cutting parameter. Go to the material database and set the "positioning" process as red. This step allows you to control the position of the template.
