Photo in acrylic tests

Testing the dots. All were done at 340 lines per inch.

This was the image to start with


Then I had to invert it for acrylic

Then the results of the different dot settings. I didn’t even notice the numbers because they get covered up by the cursor (@dan you may want to look into that.)

Agreed. 75 looks best to me from this angle.

Now I guess I could do 75 with more and less lines per inch.

I accidentally had it a little smaller. But 450 lines looks better than 225. I’m going to do 2 more bigger and at 6xx lines.

Medium proofgrade

Heres another dog at my favorite settings, but I think the contrast needs to be increased

It is a white dog… so probably hard to do perfect anyways.

Final test… which looks better. Left or right?

  • Left looks better
  • Right looks better

Sad part (or good for glowforge) is that is the standard draft photo settings on the left. Now when I tested that for the first one, it came out a blob.
