Laser engraved brick

Find out how you can make an original present for home-builders using a simple 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 design with less details, use the 2" lens.
