First attempt at tile


#1

I think tile might be my new favorite material. I recently stopped at Menards and picked up a number of different sizes, so I can see that this may get out of hand pretty quickly. Very fun!


#2

Looks great! Perfect aspect ratio.


#3

Really liking this vertical display. And I can see that the square tile I have on hand is just not going to cut it.


#4

That is a great design and use of material. Just that simple use of color and placement is so cool.


#5

Marvelous design. Did you have to sand the tile or find tile that was already flat on the sides?


#6

Nice, clean & sharp.


#7

No sanding necessary.


#8

Very crisp! Any tips on process/cleanup?


#9

I used transfer tape to cover the tile before engraving so I’d have less to clean up after painting. I used latex paint, let dry, and then wiped the top of tile of with a wet paper towel and it cleaned up nicely. Seemed to work great on this tile!


#10

Please make more and share them all!!


#11

Very well done.


#12

How did you solve the alignment issues?


#13

I didn’t. Even though I was suppose to get snapmark, it still hasn’t appeared on my latest machine. So, I try to put the tile directly under the camera, adjust in the UI, and hope for the best. This one worked well. If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d make a jig out of cardboard or draftboard. Snapmark will eliminate that for projects like this in the future, if I ever get it.


#14

Love it! Very sharp!


#15

Can you share your settings?


#16

I used the settings from a different tile thread located in beyond the manual, located here! I upped the DPI on a few elements, but the settings in the Etching Tile thread worked great.

@glowforge7, I love the robot theme with the decorative borders. Robots are cool. Flower borders are cool. Putting them together makes your tiles cooler-er!
