I found these cool marble tile pieces at H.D. and etched them today using varying speeds and power. No matter the power/speed settings or number of passes, it only took off the very top layer, roughly 1/100th.
How would I go about getting a deeper etching?
As you’ve already discovered, you can’t. The laser doesn’t have the power to do more than mark the surface of many materials.
yea, what he said! ^ Happy Birthday
If you blast hard enough you will turn calcium carbonate into calcium oxide where it will suck out whatever humidity is about and turn into quicklime,
Did a settings test about two weeks ago, left it on my work bench and came back to this.
Chemical reaction to the air? Think immediate marble sealant would help? Only occured on the 100 speed column. Hoping the rest doesn’t slowly dissolve because while the science geek in me thinks this is wildly cool, the designer half worries. Anyone else have this happen?
