It doesn't translate over to our low powered machines at all...not even close. You would have to test any of these materials yourself and determine your laser parameters needed to get the 'look' you want. And depending on the material, you might not be able to get the engraving look you want.

shame it is not even slightly close. The only alternative I see is me having to get one of these 40W CO2 lasers!
thanks Ralph
