Projects / Pistol box
« on: December 09, 2019, 05:25:08 PM »
I wanted to make a wood storage box for a pistol i got my girlfriend for Christmas. I purchased the box at Michaels and engraved her favorite sea creature in on the lid. I then used the laser to mark and start a cut on the foam i used on the inside. I was not able to cut all the way bit it gave me a good starting point. After I put Felt on the underside of the lid I engraved the Ruger logo. I finished it off by covering the pink foam with blue velvet.

General Discussion / Longer legs
« on: December 30, 2018, 12:36:13 PM »
I am thinking about building longer legs for my unit to allow it to use the rotary I had printed  and then go back to normal use with out having to move the unit each time. I have it mounted in side of a box i built to hold everything and bolted down whit l brackets right now. Is that any issue whit the framing being further away from the project for normal engraving use? Here is my current set up.

Engraving / Engraving a Mirror
« on: December 08, 2018, 05:11:45 PM »
I am planing on doing backlit engraved mirrors for my nieces for Christmas and since my new 2.5w module showed up I started testing to check the settings I would need based on what I have read on here. I ran the image at Speed:1500 Power:255 in T2 laser. I only did one pass and when  pulled the mirror out of my encloser i could see were it had engraved the back of the mirror but not in both layers. Do i need to go slower or do multiable passes?

LaserGrbl / Swaping Y axis
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:59:27 PM »
I have tried to use this program with my Engraver and the Y access is set the wrong way for me. Is there any way in the program to swap the y axis? I know I can in T2  and in Elekcam . I have not tried any other software yet.
