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.

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:


#27

I laughed at it too. :stuck_out_tongue:

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

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.

#34

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

I etched on a chromebook, there was a bad smell, the chromebook warped slightly, and the oil from my fingers affected the etch but overall it looked pretty nice

:slight_smile: … we lost a knight, a few regiment of archers and thousands of peasants starved but it was a successful campaign overall.

I like how you think, and that looks better than pretty nice.
