xTool D1 60W (10w outupt) Diode!

Having used Lightburn for my K40, was a little hesitant with the new D1 from xTool. However, it really impressed me for speed (considering it is a diode) and the output focus and power at 10W. Did this one but it took 4-hours. is 10x12”

Is this actually 3D or just extremely good shading? It’s beautiful!

Agree. The illusion of depth is really pronounced.

Very beautiful.
what kind of wood is this? do you have this file to make available?

Wow, amazing :+1:

it is done with extremely good shading.

It is a copyrighted purchased file. Kind of pricey but it came out really nice. If you’re interested go to Etsy and 805Laserspot. He has many such high depth illusion files. The material is just 3 mm birch plywood. I sprayed it with a solution of baking soda and water and let it dry to get the darkness.

I took it to my office and people kept running their fingers over it thinking it was a carving. Thank goodness I gave it several coats of clear acrylic to protect the burn! if you’re interested you can go to Etsy and I put the link below. The average charge for these files is $10. This one was eight dollars on sale. They’re designed for glow Forge but work great with a K 40 or a diode laser but you have to experiment with speed and power to get the desired effect.

Seriously!? I was sure it was a 3D laser carving. I’ve done some of those, but on my K40. This looks phenomenal! I’ll check out that supplier!

Amazing effect! Thanks for the link. Decided to give one a try as well…
