I need a rubber stamp with my name and title on it to help speed some documentation at work. I picked up a sheet of “low odor” rubber from Johnson Plastics and got to work. The item number is RUS001 if anyone is interested.
The first thing I learned was that “low odor” is a subjective term. VERY subjective. Other than that, the material itself was good and consistent. I did an “R” (and then flipped it horizontally) to test it on inkscape, and it was pretty easy. I used two different colors, and the GFUI wanted to engrave them both. Since they were different colors, the GFUI wanted to engrave them in different steps, so I just told it to ignore the step where the “R” itself would be engraved, leaving only the other step which cuts everything BUT the R.
For settings, I found another post here from earlier and found the settings worked pretty well. I used 70% power at 340 speed, with two passes. To cut, I used full power at 200 speed, and I got a nice clean cut.
Attached some photos so you can see how it came out. Make sure you are well vented, or maybe try the “No odor” variety of material, because it smelled like, well, burning rubber…
