PostSubject: Laser Engraving For Trade   Sun Apr 12, 2009 4:59 am

I'm willing to do some laser engraving for a trade for an rf board (modded or unmodded) or a few smds if anyone bought bulk and wants to pawn off a few. To do it I would need the picture in bitmap form, scale (L x W) for the plexi and the image. pm me here or reply to this thread, or email me. m121090@hotmail.com email would probably get the quickest response


edit: I need to also know whether you want the engraving on the inside or on the outside of the acrylic. I can also do stencils if people want.

oh, and those arent scratches on the back, I always leave the plastic film on the un-engraved side until the hot glue gun is out and heated up.

1st trader.

i tried to get a pic of it engraving, but there was too much glare from the overhead lights. I did get a couple cutting out a stencil for doing digi-camo on my box (turned the overhead lights off)





This one I cant even tell what its doing, apparently cutting the matte-board. And these pics of the engraver arent the best because they were taken with my phone which the screen is broken so i was pointing and clicking and hoping:)

yes it absolutely can as you can see above. I can even cut the 360s case for custom windows. However, I have only done one 360 case so if you do want me to do one there would be a little amount of risk. risk being that it might not turn out perfect, over melting plastic etc...

just a lttle info, the thickest plastic I've cut on it is 1/4 in modelling sheet(way less dense than the 360 case) Ive done about 10 custom engravings so far. most for friends in hometown 1 now for SR2K. Also if people want a certain thickness of acrylic let me know, ive done .100 and .08 for all of the ones so far.

Another cool idea I had, if someone was interested, would be to just cut a design in the plexi, then paint the plexi with UV paint so the hole side glows with light shining through the image.

yeah it actually is from my schools shop, but seeing as I am the only one who really knows how to use it and I am teaching the teachers how to use it I pretty much get unlimted use of it. So if people are considering getting something engraved or cut june is the deadline.

How much would you want to cut a stencil a little smaller than the side of a 360?

Nope that wasn't my goal at all. I have been looking for one of thses for ages and I was getting over excited.

Our cnc program was shut down so noone really uses the lab anymore.

yeah, its not quite as bad as is in the image, its just blocky, like if you set your 17in monitor to display in 320 x 640, just not that good of resolution, but that 600dpi should turn out much better

Okay. I don't think the overlapping would've come out the way I wanted no matter how high quality it was....engraving can only go so far Very Happy But yeah, the other image should come out a lot better.
