Cermark Raster on Brass

#1

I saw this on the Facebook laser forum. Thought I would share with everyone here. It came out really well. Can’t wait to see what people are making in a months time.


#2

Very nice. Love the artwork.


#3

Wow. That’s just dithered?


#4

Aye.

“Just a test on brass…I used cermark LMM 6000 …100mm/sec speed 70% Power, 300DPI.”

Maybe when all these GFs make it to their destinations CerMark will actually drop to a reasonable price - greater demand, opportunity for higher production, lower costs, less profit needed per sale. I didn’t really pay attention in Economics like I should have, but I think it went something like that.


#6

Oh, so cool.


#7

Maybe Zippo engraving :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@zerbyte75 happy cake day :wink:


#8

Good job! looks great, sharp details.


#9

Yes. I’d like to see something like this done on a beta forge. That would bring some squeee. I’ve noted that the Facebook group has lots of posts of engravings like this. It’s a big part of the allure of a laser.


#10

Happy, happy cake day!..or is it birthday? Either way, hope it’s great.


#11

Happy birthday :confetti_ball:


#12

Aye, I’ve asked for this a number of times, but it hasn’t shown up yet. Apparently their raster engine is still under development


#13

I am hoping to be able to do this for a friend of mine. I am hoping a sample of CerMark comes with each Glowforge.


#14

You’ve got it right up until they go, “but extra profits from maintaining same retail price!” :money_mouth_face:


#15

This looks great! I just tried moly on brass and got nada. I might bring myself to the painful place of buying the Cermark!


#16

Dry Moly lube works on steel.


#17

Initially when demand goes up it exceeds supply, so price goes up. :frowning: But if the sales volume doubles on an ongoing basis, yeah, hopefully prices come down. Is there any good competition for CereMark?


#18

Used to be Thermark but then the two companies merged :slight_smile:


#19

On my non GF laser I’ve used both Bright Galvanizing Spray and Cold Galvanizing Spray from Rust-o-leum. They seem to work on steel and aluminum (but not polished aluminum last time I tried). I haven’t tried it on brass yet. Neither was as dark as thermark though.
