Nice job, that looks fantastic.
@Bulldog you have mastered the photo engraving my friend!
Can you give an indication of the size and how much time it took?
I am deciding on which laser module to buy. Would you advise an Eleksmaker? I am building my own CNC, but if the Eleksmaker is any good, I am interested in the diode module.
105 x 105 mm White Maple
appox 50 minutes
2.5 watt Eleksmaker diode
1200 mm/min 50% power 317.5 DPI
The Eleksmaker in my option a very good laser unit…lots of issues with clones
are you doing anything to the photo before bringing it into LB? I can’t get results like these on photos, would love to know the trick!
I’ve tried on all my machines, Just got my CO2 working today. I have three (2 really) I have an Ender 3 converted with a “10w” endurance laser, and a snapmaker (original) with 1.6w and 2.5w modules and a K40 that I just converted to an OpenBuilds Blackbox controller with PWM. But like I said I can’t get near the quality of photo reproduction that I see on a lot of different post.
@FSD333 have you played with the burn at 1.25 Watts? Also are you burning after you use the white paint sprayed?
I use Paintshop Pro to convert to B/W…clean up a bit then resize and set DPI to 318…import into LB…use Jarvis …sometimes Stucki…fail or make it is that the beam has to be pin point focused…can;t do it by eye…I use USB microscope and lookat 1 x 10 mm scan…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuhHsIySGlo
What was the resolution of the image?
Did you convert it from JPEG or GIF . . . and if so, how?
I only ask because it is such a GREAT piece that I want to learn from your expertise.
And where do you get white maple? Is it easier to buy than toilet paper during these dark days of COVid-19?
105 x 105 mm
I use Paintshop Pro 19 convert to b/w
import into LightBurn
Use Jarvis dither
50% power,0.07 line interval…1200 mm/min
Local Lumber yard rough cut white maple
Plane it resaw
Yes easier to get than toilet paper
Local stores around me Oshawa Canada still out
That goodness we have a root cellar that is always stocked
Beer, and whiskey also…lol
only resize in Paintshop LightBurn has image enhancement now under shape properties
