Creating two layer 3d effect - Help Please?

I have a 2 layer acrylic SVG … the top layer is set to be 1/16th 2 tone acrylic with a cut out of the etched bottom piece (a black boot print) etched 2/16 (yes yes 1/8) into 3/16th black acrylic.

Whats the secret sauce setting for the upper cut to allow the bottom to slide up through the cut? I know it wont just slide into the cut (at least mine wont let me) Suggestions?

Since the laser cuts a slightly trapezoidal kerf, try cutting one upside-down. I’ve found that can give the two parts JUST enough space to fit together.
