My dad is a retired policeman and keeps himself busy with a jewelry company catering to police and fire.
One of his big sellers is St. Michael themed pieces, interestingly the police and fire fields both still have very strong Catholic influences today.
Anyway, I shot him a couple photos of some of the items I ran through the Glowforge today and he shot back a photo of a new design asking if it could be done. The photo he sent was actually a picture he shot with his phone while we were talking, a photo… of a photo, on his computer screen. Of course I told him if we had line art it would come out much better. He said he will get the artwork from his die maker.
Well, just for giggles, I ran the photo he sent. Did a little perspective correction, boosted the image contrast for the second attempt. Also on the second attempt I decided instead of the single score line between the engraving edge and the cut edge, I would run a set of concentric scores. That came out really cool! I didnt measure anything, just eyeballed a bunch of offsets and ended up with a neat texture.
