Thank you @henryhbk for putting up with me. Enjoy the Cannoli’s!
To start off, we looked a design a friend of mine made. This is the design for some money for a LARP(Live Action Role Playing) they are running. (For those that might be interested https://www.facebook.com/manicdysphoria/)
Doing a reverse engrave for a stamp would have taken some time, so we just did an engrave on some Proofgrade Maple.
Next up, I brought a plank of Yellowheart. So, obviously I wanted to do some Catan pieces! https://glowforge.com/laser-cut-catan-board One thing to note, we had to do some post processing in AI to get it to cut properly.
In Process. The masking was coming off. Also, the engrave was a lot deeper and darker then we thought it would be. Lots of residue.
I had some “acrylic” sheets that I got for $1 each (they were getting rid of them at work). Decided to try engraving it to see if it was cast or extruded acrylic. It just burned/melted. Thought maybe the masking was the issue. Nope. Yellowed and melted instead of cutting through. Maybe it isn’t acrylic…
@Dan, this was a bit weird, and I reported a separate bug we had at the time which may be related, but his piece of yellow wood was too long to fit in the GF, so I made a simple line SVG and cut it (could I have used a saw? Sure, but why?). It cut extremely well and all the way through easily. The exact same cut settings on the main piece did not cut all the way through (more like a very deep score)…
Just checking the obvious For the record: did you change the thickness setting and affect focus? I’ve done that before. I’d miss something since the settings interface defaults have worked in different ways in the last few months.
Trying to picture how you cut the wood but if it bridged the edges of the crumb tray maybe it was up higher then?
