Try engraving a piece of agate crystal with your Trotec laser engraving machine.
You Will Need:
- Agate crystal disks
- A leather band
- Speedy 360, 100 Watt
- 1.5" lens
- Vacuum table
You can use any machine from the Speedy series to create this sample.
We used a 1.5" lens for our pendant due to our beautiful filigree design.
Create your design or feel free to import our available template. We scanned our agate crystal disk to our PC to adapt our design to the shape of the stone. Now, you can send the job to the laser using the following driver settings:
|Process Mode||Resolution||Cut Line|
For perfect results every time, we recommend using the highest possible resolution (1000 dpi) for this engraving job.
Place the crystal into your Trotec laser machine and focus on the surface. If your stone is rounded, focus on the average value of the engraving area. Enter the material parameter settings - note that these settings can vary depending on the laser machine you are using and its available power.
|Colour||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
|1||On||+ 1.5 mm||High Quality|
Due to the +1.5 mm z-offset (out of focus) the contrast will be higher than if you were engraving in focus.
The greatest part about agate crystals is that these stones don't need to be cleaned after engraving! Attach a leather band or a pin to your new pendant, and your personalised agate crystal is ready to wow your friends / customers!
The sky is your only limit with laser technology - you can fulfil any customer request. Try adding logos, aphorisms or even congratulatory messages.
