I want to make a wooden stamp. I have my logo which i traced in LB. I figured the way i could possibly do it, is to create a rectangle, drop the traced logo inside and then either boolean union / subtract, which ever of these would work the best. However im finding this wont work.
Any advice on how to subtract the logo away from a shape. Im going to engrave the area around the logo so the logo stands proud from the material and burn away the rest.
A few tips upfront:
You definitely want to do a boolean difference subtracting the logo from the background rectangle. This will leave you with the area that you want to engrave.
Boolean operations only work with 2 objects. You may need to group the items in the logo to make sure it’s acting as a single object
Boolean operations only work with closed path shapes. Make sure the logo doesn’t have any loose ends although it shouldn’t coming out of a trace operation.
If you need some more help drop the .lbrn file here and I’m sure someone can take a look.
It difficult with wood. Don’t make it more complicated that it needs to be.
There are a number of threads about ‘rubber’ stamps. I’d think the idea would be the same…
I saw that, for the moment, Lightburn doesn’t have a ‘ramp’ mode for stamp making, so I guess I’m going to have to use RDWorks.
My wife wants some stamps for the classroom, but I’ve never etched rubber before - any tips?
I have a (true!) 40W and a 100W available.
I would rather use the 40W as I suspect etching rubber will be a dirty business and the 100W is used for clean jobs.
I’ve ordered some 2.3mm ‘laser etching rubber sheet’ - can anyone give me some base settings and/or tips?
Alright thanks, i think that worked. I grouped together but must have done something else wrong but it ended up working.
Neat can make wood stamps now
