Note: THE COLOR OF THE PHYSICAL PART IS GREY. The colors in the pictures are to make the items more visible in the listing photos. PLAY THE VIDEO BELOW FOR THE VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS - YOU WILL BE SENT TO THE CORRECT TIME STAMP OF THE VIDEO. This fixture can be adapted to the F1 ULTRA, scroll down to see how. When using with metal materials on the high power F1 ULTRA - use at your own risk. A lot of heat can be generated with the high power F1 ULTRA when deep engraving or embossing metal materials and there is a risk of melting the fixtures. 

Upgrade your XTool F1 laser cutter and engraver with this engraving fixture (as seen in the video above) and increase your production efficiency, accuracy and repeatability.

The XTool F1 is compatible with the XTool RA2 rotary module which would allow you to process cylindrical objects. However, there may be some circumstances where the RA2 is not suitable:

  • Some very large objects may not fit in the RA2
  • The engraving graphic is small enough that the the RA2 setup time is not warranted.
  • Perhaps your workpiece is round but the ends are oddly shaped and difficult to hold with the RA2 chuck jaws.
  • The other possibility is that you're just not ready to purchase the RA2 just yet and you need a quick and easy method of holding cylindrical work pieces. 

This is where the V-Block fixture is your solution. Round objects will sit securely in the 'V' shaped fixture. Obviously the work piece will not rotate as you engrave so there are still some limitations to the workable area of your tumbler, mug, or other round object. The fixture locates the center axis of your cylindrical object with the center of the work area so alignment in the software is easy (just center your graphic).

To provide you with even more value, this fixture is also designed to accept other objects for (flat) batch engraving. 

There are:

  • 9 slots to hold standard (7mm wide) pencils. 

  • 5 slots to hold aluminum bottle openers

Examples of suitable pencils and bottle openers can be found in the links at the bottom of this page.

This kit also includes the corresponding digital template to load into XTool Creative Space software (or Lightburn). (Be sure to enter your email address on checkout to receive the files!) Then you can overlay your graphics so there is no more guess work when it comes to matching the position of your materials in physical space and in the software workspace.

See the upcoming above video for an in-depth explanation of how the fixture system works with the digital file. It is very quick and easy. The video also contains example settings for best results processing these materials. 

What is included:

  • V-Block / Pencil / Bottle Opener Jig

This fixtures can be adapted to fit the XTOOL F1 ULTRA with this adapter:

In addition to the XTOOL F1 - these jigs can be used in a similar way with the XTool S1. Although the S1 does not have a pocket for them to sit, they make material alignment very easy with the S1's "two point positioning" system - especially with round or oddly shaped objects.

  1. Place the fixture and your material in the work space. Use the focus probe to touch down on your work piece.
  2. Capture the top left and bottom right corners of these fixtures using the two point positioning.
  3. Import the digital templates into XTool Creative Space. Align the templates with the bounding box created with the two point positioning measurement.
  4. Overlay your design onto the corresponding area of the fixture and set your material parameters. 
  5. Process.

If you purchase multiple fixtures you can panelize them in your workspace to batch process materials for efficiency.
