Hi @dan, I was just thinking something…
I’m just looking at my keyboard right now, there are some aftermarket laser engraved letters on it for our country, but it’s really sloppy work. The speed was to high I think, and it’s really not a clean engrave, didn’t remove all the material.
Do you think there could be a feature (maybe there already is) that could engrave multiple same items in the GF at once, but we only set up the first one.
Lets say I want to engrave 100 of the same letter keyboard keycaps (maybe I’ll start a business out of this :P). I put them all in the GF, set up one and just tell it do it for all the other ones as well. So I get the same result on all but only set up the first one.
I’m thinking this should be possible. The way that the Mac book was engraved, the GF recognized it and put the design over it automatically. Now if we scale it down to a 100th of that size, and put a lot more of those in there… Can we let GF just do it’s thing on all of them in a simple way?
Otherwise I’m thinking I’d just cut 50-100 openings in a piece of plywood that would snugly hold the keycaps, and just make a “profile” for it. The keycaps would always be in the same position relative to the borders of the pylwood.
Or maybe just put the whole keyboard in, but my Razer Blackwidow is to thick I think.
btw @dan, could you try doing something like that? Or maybe not on that scale but just engrave 1 keyboard with some custom keys. Maybe replace the windows key with a Glowforge logo keycap
