Image on Tile - CO2 Laser

Just started burning images on tile. And here is the first one of my wife and I. I know the image isn’t centered and due to time limitations I had to abort the image early. Overall I think it turned out pretty decent.

I run several test tiles to determine feed and speeds (see attached). For my setup, 5% power and 50mm/s speeds seems to give the best results. Also, gloss white from HD worked better than flat white. Now to work on focus.

I have a K40 set at 16ma max, Light Objects air assist, LO power Z bed, LO 600 watt chiller, CNCOLETECH 18mm ZnSe Focus Lens, TEN-HIGH Mo Reflective Lens.

Looks real good for a co2 laser.

Thank you.
