I’ve been struggling trying to find the perfect settings for photo engraving. Working on plywood has been difficult since the natural fibres in the wood keep messing with me.
I have switched to engraving on MDF, which have proven easier. The results I’m getting now are really good. I’m able to keep the speed at a maximum 1000, allowing me to create large engravings, and still get a good result. Key is to alter the image in photoshop first. High contrasts and grayscale.
Convert to dots (keep original settings)
