How to make a 3D Elephant Bust using a Laser machine

Make a 3D Elephant Bust on a Laser machine

In this tutorial we will show you how to create a 3D Elephant head using a Pure Laser Machine using acrylic (3mm). As usual, the design will be available to download, in Vectric V Carve, at the bottom of this page.

Step 1 Import the elephant head parts into RD Works or your own laser software and nest them.  You could use something like V Carve below to nest as we have in this tutorial. Set the tool diameter (1.0 mm) and the border gap at 5.0 mm, so that the laser does not overlap onto other pathways.  Doing this will save you on material that you could be using on other projects you have.  You can do it by hand but it will take you a while.

Step 2  Import the elephant head parts into RD Works (or your laser software that  you currently use).   This is where we will be using the laser cutter software to assign the right speeds and powers for the project.   Please note that these settings are all dependant upon what size tube you have in your machine and you should use the speed and powers that are suitable for your machine when processing 3mm acrylic.

Step 3 Assign the cutting parameters and cut out. For a 3 mm sheet of acrylic we would recommend setting the machine to 15 mm/s and 55-60% power.
