I just got my Glowforge setup yesterday. I make custom dog earrings: https://www.etsy.com/shop/VicTacToeCO
I have been getting them cut with the laser cutting company, Ponoko. But they are so expensive I decided a Glowforge would be a better investment in the long run
I have done some test runs of my earrings on the proofgrade plywood, and it is not going well. I have tried many different cut/score settings and it seems like both the score and the cutting is burning too much, because they come out looking like burnt marshmellows… but sometimes the cut doesn’t even go all the way through.
So, for my trial cuts I have been trying to cut a Chihuahua earring. The bottom earring is one cut from Ponoko, and the look I’m going for. The top is Glowforge. This is the same exact art file even though the Glowforge one looks super tiny.
I’ve been searching for some documentation on settings but I can’t find anything to help. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be amazing.
Thanks so much!
