Materials Used for This Funny Valentine Laser Craft
Below are the materials and some links to the items I used. Always use what you have on hand. You can also size the ornament to scrap you want to use, but don’t go smaller than 3 inches (or so) or you might break an area.
- Free Cupid Rhymes with Stupid SVG
- 3mm Basswood Plywood
- xTool S1 40W (or other laser)
- 6-Inch Inline Fan (LOVE this thing)
- Cloth for Wiping and Sponge for Sanding
- UV Sealant (this is my favorite spray sealant – no messy brushes)
How to Design in XCS
Import the Cupid Rhymes with Stupid SVG or drag and drop it onto the canvas. Size to 4.2 inches high (make sure the proportion lock is in place). Set the item to CUT and insert your settings (see Notes below).
How to Cut 3mm Basswood Plywood with xTool S1 40W
Load the unmasked basswood plywood onto the honeycomb (grain up and down) with something elevating it (wood or acrylic scraps are good). Use the pins to secure.
Turn on the laser and position the crosshairs over the material. Select Auto Measure and allow the machine to set the distance.
Select “Start Marking” and the rectangle option. Move the crosshair to the upper left-most point of the processing area and press the Start button on the machine to lock it in place. Move the crosshair to the bottom right-most point of the processing area and press the Start button to finalize the rectangle. Select End Marking and Done.
Move the design into the processing area and Frame it. Turn on the inline fan (open the blast gate, if necessary) and process the job.
How to Finalize the Cupid Rhymes with Stupid Ornament
Use a clean, dry cloth to remove soot from the edges of the ornament. Be sure to get into the ribbon / twine hanger.
Take the ornament outside and spray with the UV sealant per the package instructions.
Cut a piece of twine or ribbon, string, and display the funny Valentine SVG ornament.
