Is it just me or does it seem like we lose a lot of detail when photo etching on ProofGrade to the protective masking tape. I don’t know how many ‘failed’ cuts i have because it looks awesome while engraving, then pull off the tape and notice that all the hair detail for example was just on the masking tape and didnt even hit wood.
The issue then is, when i remove the tape before hand, everything is charcoal.
It would be awesome if Glowforge could account for the tape thickness, and adjust so that pure white is bare wood, NOT masking tape. So that any other levels of gray are guarantied to etch the wood, and not just the tape.
Still trying to figure out this new HD Photo setting. Seems they add post processing as well through some sort of filter, so your end result will NOT be as you see it on screen. A bit frustrating. as hardwood is more expensive.
