Summary

A simple way of showcasing different possibilities with a laser cutter:

  • 20 engraving shades
  • 3 straight line flex cuts
  • 2 parabolic shape flex cuts
  • 10 square and circular cut sizes
  • 6 font size tests

Instructions

Before cutting make sure that the file is adapted to the settings used by your own laser cutter (This file is made for the Universal Laser Systems VLS 6.60 laser cutter). When the file is adapted change it to have the material that you plan to cut and its settings written in the respective fields.
NOTE: You may need to cut a few tests before you get the settings just right, but that is the idea :) just remember to always adjust the settings in the file.

Trying to get this to work in RD Works (chinese laser cutter software) but with no luck. The system just wants to cut everything. Any assistance on the settings would be great as there are over 70 layers so far.

Hi.

It sounds like you are not defining your cut and engrave lines correctly.
I do not have any experience with that specific laser cutter.

However you can try the following steps:

  • Verify that the laser cutter supports raster engraving.
  • Through trial and error find the correct cutting settings for your material
  • Through trial and error find the correct engraving settings for your material
  • Finally apply these settings to the models cutting and engraving parts

Hope this can help you move forward.
Best Regards

Ended up just remaking the engraving section to be small rectangles and not the circle. Works great now :D

I'm using the same software on a Boss laser. Could you share the file that you modified so I don't have to go through and fix the layers? greatly appreciated!

A boss laser uses a crappy chinese program? wow.. I can send you the rd works file, email me? [email protected]

It uses laserworks, which is basically the same thing as far as i can tell. Works well, just gotta get used to some odd error messages every once in a while and be able to read between the lines. haha, but i do really like our machine!

We just got a brand new Epilog and I will be giving it a test run on this template this week. Thank you for posting. This will be great!

A lot of our members have been looking for this type of test file for the laser. You have done a wonderful job on it. Would it be ok to post a link to this page from our facebook group " Laser Engraving and Cutting " https://www.facebook.com/groups/441613082637047/

Sure. Im just glad others could benefit from it :)

Great job! Just what I was looking for.
