Still, thanks for posting the png. I am looking forward to surprising my wife with a plaque like that.

Thanks!  My wife is huge into Harry Potter...actually cried when Dobby died. She is between jobs right now, so I think something like this in our house would be halarious.

Did you design that yourself or find it online (Dobby....not the marijuana)

Here are some greyscale images done on wood and slate with T2L.
I don't have the settings with me so I can't give you those but they should be here on the forum somewhere.

I love that one you did with Dobby! That would be very fitting in my house

Very nice!

What pins are used on the Arduino? Assuming grip 1.1, is it pin 9 for X and 10 for Y?

Matches, here is the video I watched on how to convert images to vector.

Sorry about not linking it. I am doing this on my phone.

I used that and Zax's how to with Inkscape and it worked great!

Well, the awards were received very well. Everybody loved them. I am now making more for one of the guys on my fishing trip for a company trip He has coming up. Not a bad deal. Two awards for two customized Yeti cups. I call that a fair deal  8)

Agreed! Thanks Zax. As soon as I install the latest version, you improve it.  ;D

Thanks Zax. I just installed eggbot and will have play around with it.

My thoughts exactly. If they want straight lines, they can get a sharpie.

Hey all,

These are my first attempts at converting a file I mad into a vector instead of raster. I wanted to do that because it cut down about 4 hours of laser time.
I followed Zax's way of converting a picture to vector in Inkscape and it worked very well. One question I do have is my file shows that the outside border is full black while it only engraved the outside of the border without filling it in. Any way to fix that?

Please excuse the wavy and uneven lines. During these burns, I found out my X axis belt is loose. It was -10*F in my garage, so fixing it at this time is unlikely. Plus, these are for a fishing trip I am going on, so what if they are a little crooked? Are we all  ;D?

Attached is v0.2 of ImageResizer.
  • Added small/medium/large radio buttons for resizing
  • Better labeling
  • Front and back end changes to the save directory interface

One future improvement I plan to do is add a batch convert for a selected folder. but....walk before I run.

Again, feedback is always appreciated.
