    Default laser engraving success

    i've been slowly over time building/rebuilding/tweaking a 60w co2 laser engraver system.

    i did some work on it last night and got some beautiful results engraving slate tile @300 dpi.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Excellent! Now you can make fake fossils to confound paleontologists - I suggest Dr. Seuss-based beasts...

    Wow, love the Trilobyte!

    This thread is not complete without photos of the laser !!!

    In a past job I had 2 x Epilog lasers. A 20W Fibremarker that could engrave straight to stainless steel or ali, the other a 60W co2 cutter. The work I used to create on them was stunning.
