Week #3 – Laser Cutting – Nazca Light Mobile

I made an acrylic light mobile based off the ancient geoglyph land etchings in Peru called “Nazca”.

I did a test on the cardboard for one shape on the 75w printer, but regret not doing the whole actual size because I confused the sizing when I switched it over to the bedding size file. This cut off the ends of the 2 birds’ tails.

I had the settings at 18″ acrylic but for some reason it took 4 passes to finally cut through.

I did the base on the 50w machine and didn’t have any problems.

I tied the nazca line shapes to the top with clear fishing wire.

  1. Nice work.

    When you cut out the pieces on the 75 W laser, do you manual focus the beam? If not, that could explain why it took so many passes to cut it out.

    For documenting purposes, you should shoot the video with a white background like you did in the image above it.
