Step 1

Step 1: Creating/importing the graphic

Start by either creating your own design or using our template. We scanned our agate disk to adapt our design directly to the shape of the stone. Send the job to the laser using the settings below.

Print settings

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 1000 dpi none
Halftone Others


To achieve a perfect result  for our detailed graphics we used the highest possible resolution of 1000 dpi when laser engraving.

Step 2: Laser engraving the agate

Position the agate disk onto your laser machine bed and focus on the surface. If the stone is rounded, focus on the average value of the engraving area. Next you should create the material parameter settings. These parameters can vary depending on your laser machine and its available laser power.

Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Advanced
1 on + 1.5 mm high quality


Due to the +1.5 mm z-offset (out of focus) the contrast created is higher than when engraving in focus.
