Macbook Pro Engraving

Hello Gloforgers!

This is my very first post, and I would like to begin by saying thanks to all of you who have been sharing your knowledge and artistic vision over the past few years, it has been a great help.

To be brief, I have wanted this art I stumbled on engraved on my MacBook Pro, and after many attempts, part orders from amazon, and reading from the user posts in the community, I was able to push my personal envelope and make the idea a reality.

Thanks!

There was a lot of trial and error. Fortunate enough you can order MacBook panels on Amazon. :wink:

Beautiful. I’m not brave enough to put my MBP in the fire just yet. Great job.

the screen replacement isn’t too bad for the mbp, my son threw a dog bone into the screen and shattered it, so I bought a replacement and did it @ home, it is modular, the whole lid. @geek2nurse had a mishap with this, so I backed down from my plans…
@blorenzo77 great engrave!

That is beautiful! What speed/power/LPI/focus/pass setting did you use? And was it SD photo engrave setting and did you leave the crumb tray in?

Thanks in advance - I’ve got a new MacBook on the way and am both terrified and excited to engrave it. I’m also only a week old at being a GF owner so any and all tip are greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

You select Macbook from the materials list, then you have default score and engrave settings.

You got your answer because it’s a PG setting, but so you are aware - the only place we’re allowed to discuss Non PG settings is in the Beyond the Manual category. So if you’re looking for something not PG you should search there, or ask the person privately. If they post here the moderators have to either delete it or move the entire post to Beyond the Manual which isn’t always what you’re looking for since the MoaG category is for showing off!

Welcome to the community - there is so much information here!
