Metal engraving not consistent

Ive been having issues with the engraving on coated metal cups not coming out consistent. Some areas come out cleaner looking than others while some areas look burnt. ive tried changing speed and power. any other changes to make it look better.

You are not going to ‘burn’ the metal.

I think what you see ‘burnt’ is the coating has not come completely off the cup.

What kind of dpi are you running? You can see the steps of the scan lines.

Looks out of focus at the outer edges of the photo, is that just the camera focus?

:smile_cat:

Are you using a rotary attachment to engrave the cup?if not, I can see why it would be out of focus on each side. If you are using a rotary, then your power need to be increased, or travel speed reduced.
