Santa Skyline



  1. Safety First: Ensure workspace is free of fire, electrical and other safety hazards. Be aware of all safety issues when cutting materials with a laser. Always have a fire extinguisher on hand
  2. Power on the laser and all of its components.
  3. Ensure that:
    - The laser is powered and the boot up cycle begins on the screen.
    - The cooling system is connected properly and water is flowing through the tube.
    - The air compressor is powered and exhausting air to the laser head.
    - The exhaust system is on and vented into a safe location.
  4. Connect to RetinaEngrave 3.0 software using your machine’s touch screen to copy the software IP address into your favorite browser. The Wired IP address is displayed at the bottom of your touch screen.
  5. Import your design and adjust power and speed settings. Double check settings including the number of passes and cut order.  (It is a good idea to have extra material on hand to run power and speed tests before hand)
  6. Insert material into the laser bed. Use the focus tool to adjust to the top of the material. Focusing should be done each time a new material is introduced.
  7. Use the “Perimeter” function to ensure that the file will fit within the cutting area. Adjust accordingly.
  8. Run the job file. Do not leave a job running unattended.

Some of the details to help you build:


The stand reinforcement is glued to the base around the middle slots to stabilize the stand posts



The stand post is glued on the narrow end to the notches in the sleigh rail.



The reindeer mount and sleigh mount are glued to the back of the figures so they can slot onto the sleigh rail.  You may glue these to the rail, or you may keep theme loose so you can reposition the figures at any time.
