Last week I did some work on glass tiles from Home Depot. This weekend I want to show what a specialty laser tile looks like from the Glowforge.
LaserTile is a specially treated ceramic tile. It comes in different sizes and is available here http://lasertile.com/
The glaze reacts to laser light and turns a fuses black. It’s a lot like what happens with laser printers. It won’t scratch off and it doesn’t actually etch the surface like I did with the glass tiles.
So I pulled out a tile, dropped my 'forge’s design onto it and hit Print. At 1%power, 335 in/min and 225 lpi, it took 9 minutes.
Here’s what it looked like on the little first-timers plaque:
And on the LaserTile:
