MacBook Etching


Sweet! I like the thinner lines too.



I etched my MacBook last night using a calculator (linked below) from another thread. I think it worked pretty well. It turned out a little pixelated, but I like it. I used 75 power, 1000 speed. Not sure what the LPI were.


Tray Removed - Calculator - Updated?


Oh nice! Like the leaf motif! :grinning:


I moved off of this topic and it wasn’t until three threads later that it hit me that you were rhyming…:man_facepalming: leaf motif

I had to come back and comment just cause it took me THAT long to get why I thought your response was neat.


I’m just glad someone caught it! :wink:


I laughed at it too. :stuck_out_tongue:


My first cut - on a piece of an old MacBook. I’m pretty happy with it


I’m just getting a 404 on your link.


Just fixed the broken link


I’m trying to do a Macbook Air, so am I supposed to remove everything and make my own base so this will work? I tried one pass set to HD Engrave and nothing happened. just a few very light brown areas from the text I put there.


Hello. Your best option for finding out more about doing that would be to do a search here on the forum. I just typed in “engraving macbook” and several posts came up. Best of luck to you.


Thanks, Im new to GF community. Just got my machine and there is so much i’d like to do.


Well, welcome to the forum. I think you’ll love it here. Looking forward to seeing your projects!
