Cutting Shapes from Birch Plywood

Reynard Craft Supplies is a business in Swinton , Manchester specialising in Laser Cutting and engraving. They also offer custom made jewellery, loose beads and findings, card making, custom made rubber stamps and MDF shapes cut to your design.

Our wood products are very popular in the shop and can be customised as a gift for any occasion. 

I used Corel Draw software to create the image on my laptop. It is simple and use and interfaces easily with the Epilog driver (Dashboard). The driver sees the default hairline created within the Corel page and will automatically want to cut (vector) the shape.

I send the job to print through the Epilog Dashboard and set the relevant vector power, speed and frequency for 3mm birch plywood. As I have a Zing 16 30watt laser I used 35% Power 50% Speed, 500 Hz Frequency for this job.

Epilog Drivers

The material is placed in the Zing laser and focused using the drop down tool and we are ready to go. Unlike traditional rotary engravers there are no mechanically forces being excerpted so there is no need to clamp the material.

The laser follows the path of the image and cuts the birch plywood. The air flow circulating within the Zing 16 cabinet reduces the flaring of the material. 

That's it! The complete product ready in time for the Big Day!
