Image settings for laser engraving

Hi all,

I need some advice on the laser engraving. If I use Adobe Photoshop, what settings should i create my image / wordings? What would be the format accepted by Boxzy interface?

I tried several times using transparent background with wordings only and used format such as png, jpeg, bmp and did several dry tests (didn't install the laser yet), Boxzy only move a few millimeters (it only covers the background). When it reaches the wordings, it stopped. Error message "format error". What could be wrong?

Regards,

Edwin.

I suggest running a test.

Drop a few pre configured images in a grid format and laser them.

See what gives the best result and revert to such settings.

After that it will be a rinse and repeat method until perfection ….

Hi Edwin,

You have to use either a JPEG or a PNG file.

Also I suggest you crop it in Photoshop and scale it so it is the exact size you want it to be in "real life."

Hope this helps,

Ken
