Mother’s Day Gift - Photo Engrave


#1

Im late to post this, but I made my wife a mother’s day gift using Drachenfeuer, my Glowforge Pro.

I tried out photo engraving and was impressed!

I learned a few things I’ll share here.
In short, I do not advise using mask for photo engraving.
The results looked great until I started peeling the masking off. Then, everything looked terrible.
I flipped the part over, removed the masking and reran it. Results were great!

Thank you @Jules!

Beautiful photo … Nice job!

I’m glad to read your advise on mask, i noticed that detail was lost with the mask. I’ll have to try it without. And what a great picture, thanks

My gut feeling is that paper or paper based products will photo engrave the best.
I’m going to try the Proofgrade Hardboard (or whatever it’s called) next!
