2014 meets 2015

2014 за нас беше година исполнета со предизвици, пречки, соништа и креативни излези.
Би сакале да им се заблагодариме на СИТЕ уметници, модни дизајнери, дизајнери и архитекти кои го посветија сопственото време да соработуваат со нас и кои допринесоа многу за развиток на концепти, идеи и проекти. Го цениме искуството на малите тимови, идеите и контекстите што ги замислувавме за различни територии, споделувањето на дискусии и визии. Се надеваме дека во 2015 ќе имаме повеќе простор и можности за учење, развиток, искусување и експериментирање со концепти, контексти и идеи.
Ви посакуваме убав почеток во 2015.
Нека биде година исполнета со учење и прогрес.

2014 has been a year full of challenges and obstacles, dreams and creative projects.
We would like to thank ALL the artists, fashion designers, designers and architects who devoted their time to collaborating with us and contributed greatly to developing concepts, ideas and projects.  We appreciate the small teams we experienced, the ideas and contexts we developed for various territories and the discussions and visions we were part of. We hope that in 2015 we will have much more space and opportunity to learn, develop, experience and experiment concepts, contexts and ideas.
We wish you a great start into 2015.
Let it be a year full of learning and progress.

Laser Cut a paper Christmas card Trotec lasers

Laser Cut a Paper Christmas Card

Surprise your family and friends with your personal Christmas card cut with the laser. All you need for this is paper in two colors.
Required material:
§  Paper approx. 200 g fir-tree green
§  Paper approx. 200 g white
§  Paper glue
 
Suitable machines: Speedy 100, Speedy 300, Speedy 500

Trotec laser used: Speedy 300, 60 watt, 1.5 inch lens

Step 1
This sample is made from two materials. We start by engraving and cutting the green paper, and then the white paper. If you like, you can add your personal inscription. We have used the following laser parameters:
§  Grid engraving: power: 15 %, speed: 70 %, resolution: 500 dpi/500 ppi
§  Vector marking – scoring: power:10 %, speed: 8 %, resolution: 500 dpi/10000 Hz
§  Vector cut – cutting through: power: 15 %, speed: 2 %, resolution: 500 dpi/8000 Hz

Step 2  
Once you have cut both paper sorts to size, first fold the green paper along its center folding line so that the engraving is on the inside. After that, open it again and fold it along the other folding lines (marked red in the file). You will thus obtain a three-dimensional object.  


Step 3 

Next, apply glue thinly to the back side of the green paper and glue it to the white paper. Leave the card folded open until the glue has dried completely.
