Latest Emblaser Engraving
I engraved this one yesterday on Poplar, using PEP5 to generate 893,641 lines of gcode. Took 2 hours and 56 minutes at 90 ipm / 2286 mm/m with a 30% Feed Rate Change. Pixel Resolution was .007 inches / .1778 mm. Power ranged from S20 (white) to S255 (black). I think engraving at an angle across the wood grain improves the final results. I also prefer to have the wood grain direction lined up along the X axis. The engraving is 8.1 inches / 207mm wide x 5.4 inches / 137mm high, and was cropped to fit the wood size. Both the original and the engraving are shown resized here to reduce forum bandwidth.
