Laser engraved brick

Learn how to make your own personalised present for home builders simply by using a clay brick!


Preparation

Required material:

  • Clay brick from the DIY store

Machine used:

  • Speedy 360, 100 Watt
  • 1.5" lens
  • Vacuum table

For this sample you can use any laser machine from the Speedy laser engraver series.

Tip:

We used the 1.5" lens because we wanted to engrave a plan with many details. For designs with less details, use the 2" lens.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import design

Create you own design or simply use our already created file. Send the job to the laser machine using the settings below:

Print driver settings

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500 dpi none
Halftone Others
Color  

Step 2: Engraving the brick

Place the brick in your laser machine, focus on the material and set the material speed and power. Keep in mind that the parameters will vary based on the type of machine and the laser power that is used.
