Working on a project to engrave some coated tumblers.
In the first image, you can see how we want it to look. Engraving right down cleanly to the metal. This was done on an Epilog engraver.
On the 2nd image, you can see the results when we use lightburn on our 100-watt Chinese model laser. It doesn’t cleanly engrave down to the metal. I can’t quite figure out if this is a setting somewhere to fix it.
The 3rd image shows what I mean in a little more detail, as well as the what appears to be melting at the beginning and ending of the engravings.
Any help is appreciated…
