So two things are required of any GF PRU recipient who has another laser - first we have to do the @takitus/@marmak3261 Aztec Sunstone and the other thing we need to do is a comparison with the results of our other lasers so we can see if we really are getting groundbreaking wonderfulness.
So here’s a Sunstone engrave from the GF and a Redsail 60W.
Can you tell which was from which machine? I hope so - it’s very apparent in real life. One is Baltic Birch ply and the other is GF PG maple ply.
The GF shows much crisper engraving with finer details.
The GF Sunstone is not weeded - I like the aging look it provides. The Redsail example was not masked but was surface sanded with a random orbit palm sander with 220 grit to remove the smoke staining.
Bottom line - the GF is delivering wonderfulness.
It’s possible other lasers like an Epilog that allows frequency and LPI controls could match the GF but it’d be 2-4X the price.
BTW, the 2nd picture was GF produced
I did grab an updated jpg for the GF one so I’ll do it again with the exact same file but the more detailed new one came out better than the less detailed first file so I figured I was more than happy.
