First of all; for laser cutting, draw the pattern which you

would like to place on the plexiglass plates with using a computer-aided software. I prefered AutoCAD because of usage flexibility and also for being experienced in this software myself.

For first step, draw the circles inside of 7 rectangles as shown by the image.

The circles that I drew are sized: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 mm and the single one, 8 mm radius. (listed from edge to center)

The important part is; to place the smallest circles (2 mm) 2 cm’s away from the edge of the rectangle, and to place the other ones 1 cm away from each other. The center point of the biggest circle (8 mm) should be placed on the intersection point of 2 diagonal lines which are placed between opposite corners of rectangle.

I also uplod the DXF files of drawing. (bütün_ayrışmış.dxf)
