I have a friend who wants to sacrifice their Macbook (2012, 13 in.) for the sake of some lasering entertainment. Does anyone here know where to find a Photoshop/Illustrator template for the top of one? I’ve looked but turned up with nothing.
You could just make your own:
Size and Weight
Height: 0.95 inch (2.41 cm)
Width: 12.78 inches (32.5 cm)
Depth: 8.94 inches (22.7 cm)
Weight: 4.5 pounds (2.06 kg)
Thanks! I think his concern is the apple logo (and wanting to cut around that but not hit it). I would just measure it, but I don’t have access to it at the moment.
I’m not sure if the logo is the same size on the 13 and 15. I have a 15in and 17in that I can measure in a little while.
My question about lasering macbooks is does it get hot enough to potentially mess with the electronics inside?
Are you planning to etch right up to the logo, or just around it with some space between? if the latter, just ask the owner to send you a photo taken from directly above, a few feet away, then scale to fit actual dimensions. Or not, actually, because you can always scale the engrave once the MB is under the camera…
This might be of use…
This is perfect!! Thank you.
Thanks for the advice everyone!
