Instruction. How-to make wooden badge with safety pin.
Step 1: Cut and Engrave
Cut and engrave badge using laser mashine.
Material: Birch plywood.
Red line - cut. Black line - engrave.
Information for inversion engraving
At first I put a dark stain on birch plywood, then varnish, dry, grind.
Or, you can just paint wooden blank.
Objective: Remove the top thin layer of paint from wooden blank and not burn wood.
Parameters for 40 watt laser machine:
- Speed - 300 mm / sec
- Maximum power - 13%
- Interval - 0.1 mm
You may need to experiment with parameters.
After a quick and low-power engraving almost no soot. Soot from the cutted edges of the product can be easily removed with a damp sponge soaked in normal water.
Effect of inversion engraving is stunning.
In this way, we are doing many projects.
