The more I try to produce my own file the more I realize I have no clue what I’m doing.
Makes me wish I had done some work learning design software.
I’ve been using Inkscape and am very slowly improving.
Today I messed around trying to create some pins of Hogwarts House crests. My wife and oldest daughter have determined they are Ravenclaw and the son is Hufflepuff. So I threw these together. It was a bit of a challenge adjusting the images even with the tutorials here and what I found on the internet but I got there. These are done on “medium proofgrade”
I am more happy with the Hufflepuff one.
The raven clae one was an attempt at a gray scale engrave. I think I may have been better off treating it the same way I did the Hufflepuff one which was to use “trace to bitmap” and play with settings until I liked what I saw.
Finished the evening by engraving my Daughters contact info on her new graphing calculator. Not sure the material was safe but I’m still alive and didn’t destroy my Glowforge.
