Need help

Post by alexxon » Mon Jun 11, 2018 7:44 pm

Hi everyone
I have bought a 40W chinese laser from Ebay and I have been struggling to engrave properly on a clear acrylic.
When I try to do etching on wood it looks good.
When I etch on acrylic the image does not become white, it is just a clear carving on material.
I have prepaired the picture with CorelDraw, Gimp and Inkscape. For using the laser I have tried the software that cames with the laser LaserDRW and an alternative software K40 Wisperer. To prepare the picture for engraving I was following different videos on youtube.
I have seen on youtube engraving with the same type of laser on acrylic and it looks completely different to mine.
Please can someone help me with an advice or to tell me what I'm doing wrong, or Is a software problem?
Thank you.
