I’ve finally had an extended amount of time this morning to work on a project using my own vector design out of illustrator. I wanted to see how the engraving process and details would ‘print’ at different sizes and using a few different materials.
Here is a shot of the file on screen in Illustrator.
Here are my results…
In clear acrylic:
And also in hardwoods using 2 different types and sizes:
These are about 2.5" diameter. I wanted to see how well the detail would work at fine lines… Amazed by the precision on the detail!
Next, I tried a different type of wood and left the size almost at original. I just fit it to the piece of hardwood by resizing it in the GF app.
With masking still on and a sharpie for size.
Final without masking. Really happy with the result!
