Engraving a photo on acrylic

Post by andaluzia1973 » Mon Mar 05, 2018 10:52 am

Hi

I'm a newbie and I need some advice engraving a family photo on a 8mm Incolor Pexiglass.

#1. Which laser head (standard, 4'', high resolution) is recommended to be used for optimal results?
#2. Any tips and tricks for my project?

Thank you.

Good day!

About the laser head,just use the standard one,it should be enough for your need,please try it first.

For engraving the Pexiglass,please change into the 6mm nozzle cone that came with the toolbox.

Other tips please watch the video below for photo engraving.
