@aj_nyc If I had the time I would love to. My printer is currently busy until spring making some parts for a product I am trying to prototype that needs to be done this winter.
I did upload all of the files onto 3D hubs for New York, New York and all of the printed parts would cost $95 for PLA and $104 for PETG. That seems like a pretty good deal. I know that my price would be probably more than double that do print them. It is not necessarily the actual printing, but the amount of time required by me. My time is very valuable to me and have lots of things taking my time (work, family, work, child, work, sports, work, hobbies, work.....did I mention work?). I also do not leave my printer unattended. I am always home when it is running, so this cuts down on the amount of time I can print.
That depends alot on the material you are burning and your machine. It takes a lot of testing to dial in your settings to get amazing pictures. You also need to play with your pictures to get them ready for engraving. review this thread for some basics
well i dont use elekscam, benbox, or GRBL laser so I dont know that my settings translate. I use T2 Laser software. The speed was 100mm/min and I used the equivalent of line by line. The power was set at maixmum which is 255 in T2.
Yes that is the board I am using. One problem I have yet to find a good solution to is lifting the knife at angles greater than a set size so not to brake the blade turning in the material. A rather crude work around that I found is to make a small gap to the path at the angle changes to force it to lift. I was planning to use the M8 coolant pin to lift the knife. The gcode tools extension outputs in radians but you can set the scale to 57.2958 to change to deg, I canged the py file so it stayed in deg.
yes so without tape you could not get the wheel tread. The smoke all around it would stain it and cause it get washed out. Tape gives good contrast and protects the woods finish around the engraving. If you plan to paint it also acts as a prefab mask.
