Wow! NIce engrave! How much work did you have to do pre-engrave on the illustration?

Not as much as you might think. I basically just pulled the image into Windows Photo Editor to adjust the color and contrast. What you’re looking for in one of these projects is something that the laser can read properly in order to determine power levels as it cuts the wood. So, grayscale adjusted to suit. Once I had what I felt would work, I just used Affinity Designer to size the piece and save it as an SVG file.

Thanks! Also, I noticed that you are in Thibodaux. I’m Gonzales. Good to see other Glowforgers in the area.

Wow! What great detail. I wish I could see it in person. Pictures can’t possibly do it justice.
