My grand daughter drew a picture inspired by her cat, Ember. Engraved in wood but decided it was time to play with corian. settings 50% power, speed 200 lpi 270
Oh wow, she’s a great artist!
Awwwwww, adorable (and realistic!) drawing. Nice job making it permanent!
Please be CAREFUL. Corian was largely removed from the consumer market about ten years ago because its dust was found to be extremely toxic. Use a high-grade mask, or better yet, just find a different material.
That must be a different corian. Dupont Corian is very popular today for countertops, etc. I turn it on my lathe for pens all the time.
