So I’m working on a project to make a portable version of my favorite board game. All the components are done (standees cut with Glowforge instead of giant miniatures), so now I’m working on making the box. I wanted to engrave the logo, but decided to try a 3D Engrave first. I’m really happy with these results!
It’s amazing what a simple dropshadow in a grayscale image can do!
Settings on Maple Hardwood PG.
Map grays to power
Minimum power 1
340 LPI (I figure 300 dpi is good quality print resolution, should be fine for this)
The bottom is the same except…
Power 100 on first pass
Power 50 on second pass
Just a minor variation test to see what would happen. I then washed under water and scrubbed with an old toothbrush.
These were small (logos are ~3" wide)… when I do it to my box lid, it’ll be much larger, so I’m sure the engrave will seem shallower, but I’m quite pleased with how these turned out!
