File preparation for Trotec Camera registration

The SP500 laser cutter is capable of perfectly cutting printed material assisted by a camera system and registration mark detection. The lasercutter can account for rotation, scale and distortion to adjust the cut lines to match your printed artwork. Please discuss with a technician prior to printing your graphics.

File set up

  1. Artboards should be the same as the printed paper size
  2. Position 6mm black fill registration circles with a 0.001 stroke in each corner
  3. Separate your cut lines, graphics and registration circles into 3 layers. These layers should be named:
    • Cut Line
    • Graphics
    • Reg Circles
