So it is now time to broaden the horizons, which means fails to occur…
After reviewing others’ postings on etching glass material, I thought to try my hand at some Hobby Lobby glass stones.
Read through many to narrow down the settings (thanks to all who have posted their experience and settings) and thought I had a good first run setup… Dish soap, clean SVG, small project, smooth surface materials … Well at least I thought
Put the materials in, change the settings and hit the Print button. Hmmmm 38 minutes??
The settings were this:
Should have paid more attention - Oops!
Amazingly bright burns Almost welding brightness!! Thinking it was something to do will glass and dish soap, I just let it run.
Job gets done (looking a little burned versus engraved) took it over to the sink to wash the soap off (did let it set for 5 minutes before getting it out of Kòptis to let it cool down). It broke into pieces and was surprisingly melted.
Okay, something doesn’t look like other people’s projects. Why? (looks at the settings and realizing that speed 100 and power 100 was not what I thought I had put in ).
Well back to the drawing board…
