How do you prepare an image for laser engraving?

  • need some help!

  • Actual picture images are recommended to be engraved. Shapes, designs and logos can be either be engraved, etched and or cut. Each of these processes require different power and speed settings. Engraving layers usually have a higher speed and medium power settings 

    Etching layers usually have medium speed and low power settings

    Cutting layers usually have low speed and medium/high power settings



  • Hi, noob here. I have been trying to engrave on some glasses fir a buddy. I have the K40 with the 40 watt tube. When I look at the engravings on the glass they have probably thousands of lines in them . Should I expect this or what? 

  • @John Wildeman what I mean is the lines are far enough apart that is it really not a great engraving. Any help would be more than appreciated.
