This is gonna be so much fun Did the crow without any adjustment to the file I had already made and still looks pretty darn cool.
The last pic is just a sneak peek of something that turned out pretty neat if I do say so myself. (Not that I had much to do with it really.) After doing the initial 3D engraving with a photo of a CNC file made by Yura Tikhonovskiy, I’ve made some adjustment to the pic to see what further detail I can bring out. It’s cutting now. (I’m not going to post the whole pic as it’s not my work. I’ve reached out to the artist to see if he minds sharing it.)
I can understand not posting the full pic since its not yours, but can you post the part of the image used (like the same part your showing the engraving of - of that last pic)? And what settings are you using on the GF?
I really haven’t checked to compare the depth, but it goes very deep. I did a second print of this that was just a tad blacker in places and it ate through the bass hardwood. You definitely don’t have to go full black to get deep engraving. In fact, they might want to dial back the power a bit.
I wish he were a buddy! I’ve just followed his work for a bit and he posted the pic to the FB laser forum. He’s about the best 3D model maker I’ve seen. Hope he has time to respond to a little hobbyist like me who wants to use his pic
