Step 3: Laser Processing

Cut out all the elements from the various wooden boards. For the cups, in the JobControl® print window assign the "Relief" process option, for everything else use the standard process option.

In addition, select "Optimized Geometries" and "Inner Geometries first" to get a nicer result.

Tip: For the relief engraving, make sure that the job is not placed over the joint of two glued wooden boards because the laser cannot erode the glue.
