Now that my garage workshop is almost complete, I was actually able to spend a bit more time over the last few days with the GF.
I have spent quite a lot of time with Photoshop over the years for photography, but not much with Illustrator, so I thought I would knock out a few projects for family while learning how to prepare images for lasering. All of my other projects to date have been for cutting parts designed in F360, so this was a bit a new process; and frustrating to boot.
One thing I have learned: I do not like Illustrator.
I have still had some issues with the GF engraving certain vector images, and I haven’t figured out what I am doing wrong. But, overall, it’s been fun.
On top of that, I thought I would give some edge lit acrylic a try. So, I created a Pokemon image for my son. It’s amazing how well his fingerprints already show up in the clear acrylic.
And, one for my father, who spent 10 years in the US Coast Guard and has also volunteered for almost 20 years in the Auxiliary.
