  • Using the editor of your choice we create the external structure of the design, making sure to preserve symmetry and aesthetics. It is ideal to keep a file of the empty structure to create other designs in the future on other themes, preserving the frame and the base to adapt it to your needs.
  • Then we take the images to use, clean them and make the necessary corrections to leave a clean line that can be easily vectorized.
  • We adapt the images to the inside of the frames, ensuring that each one has enough anchor points to make the design solid.
Step2: vectorize

We take our design, take it to lightburn or xtool and trace the image to get the vector that our laser machine will cut. If you make sure to make a design with easily recognizable and well-defined lines, the program will perfectly trace the contour simply by right clicking on the image and using the function (tracking image) we obtain the vector and we can now delete the image from the work area by we are not going to need it

Since this design is embossed we will only use the cutting function, clearly if you want to edit the design or add some engraving it would give it a personal and distinctive touch

Important: make sure the pieces fit, otherwise modify the rectangular holes in the base to adapt to the thickness of the material you are using.
If you want to change the size of the design, do it before vectorizing or with the pieces grouped. If you modify any piece separately, the design may lose its symmetry or the pieces may not fit together.
