A cute glasses frame is born!

A cute glasses frame is born!


I bought several pairs of glasses in the last few days, but I didn't have a good display and storage, so I thought I would use my company's laser engraver to cut out a wooden glasses stand. I found a 400mm*400mm board, about 3mm thick, and opened the LightBurn software and started to think about it, and also looked for pictures of glasses displays on the internet.




Required Equipment

ELECFREAKS TOOCA L1 Laser Engraver (10W)*1


1/8" Basswood Plywood (6pcs)


Safety Instructions

Before operating the TOOCA l1 laser engraver, please read and familiarise yourself with all precautions for use. The user should strictly observe all safety precautions and ensure that the TOOCA L1 laser engraver machine is correctly assembled and in proper working order.

The following operating principles should be observed.

1. Always check the TOOCA L1 laser engraver for damage before each use. Do not operate a damaged or defective machine in any way.

2. Do not disassemble or in any other way alter the construction of the TOOCA L1 laser engraver, or modify or decompile the operating system of the TOOCA L1 laser engraver.

3. Never leave the TOOCA L1 laser engraver unattended during operation.

4. The residue and chips accumulated from cutting and engraving are dangerous and may cause fires, so clean the honeycomb panels of chips and residue regularly.

5. The laser should be operated in an ambient temperature range of 5°C to 25°C and should not be operated at sub-zero temperatures.

6. Do not engrave or cut any material containing PVC or vinyl (plastic is not recommended). These materials (and other chlorine/chlorine-containing materials) produce corrosive vapors which are extremely harmful to humans and can cause damage to the machine.

7. Do not engrave or cut any unknown materials. The vaporization/melting of many materials, including but not limited to PVC and polycarbonate, can emit harmful fumes.

8. Keep the area around the TOOCA L1 laser cutting machine clean and free from cluttered flammable materials, explosives, or volatile solvents such as acetone, alcohol, or petrol. Keep a fire extinguisher on hand. Maintain and check the fire extinguishers regularly.

9. Do not open any access panels on the TOOCA L1 laser engraver when it is connected to the power supply, as this may cause unnecessary danger by accidental contact with the power supply.

10. Do not touch the electronics-related areas with your hands or other tools when the TOOCA L1 laser engravers are connected to the power supply.


Case Introduction

I had also seen some pictures of spectacle frames on display on the internet, so I had a general idea. Based on the characteristics of the glasses, one would think of the part with the hanging part (i.e. the nose part) and the round hole (i.e. the part that holds the earring frame).

The pattern was then designed using LightBurn software. This is done as follows:


Building Steps

Step 1

We first use the light burn software to design the pattern to be cut and enter the cutting parameters, such as speed and power.


Step 2

We save the .gcode document to the tf card and the Tooca L1 starts cutting once it has been scanned.


Step 3

Finished cutting As shown in the picture.


Step 4

Gouge all the cut shapes out of the board.


Step 5

The wooden frame for the glasses is assembled by fitting the shapes together according to the cut slits.


Step 6

Finally, put your glasses on the glasses stand, they look so great!
