Image Engraving on Gmelina and Mahogany

  • Hi, I'd just like to share some of the work I've done with my A3 2.5W Eleksmaker. It takes a lot of trial and error to get the correct settings for each type of wood, but is rewarding once you get a decent combination of numbers in. :)

    7x10.5x3/4 Inch Mahogany Block
    Engrave Rate: 170
    Rapid Rate: 2300
    Min Power: 03
    Max Power: 106


    4 Inch Sided Regular Hexagon & 6x6 Inch Square Gmelina Blocks
    Engrave Rate: 400
    Rapid Rate: 3000
    Min Power: 05
    Max Power: 180

    Well done, these are very nice.

  • Thanks Zax!

    These were all done on T2 Laser's velocity mode. I was able to pick up pointers from previous posts here on the forum for two of the biggest issues I encountered:

    • Don't use a USB hub to connect the Arduino especially for long runtime projects. They have a tendency to disconnect every so often leaving you in tears with incomplete engravings.
    • Reduced acceleration in the laser control settings must be disabled to get sharper lines.

    @colorfulcabbage Wow, even more impressive!

    These are some of the best results I've seen from Velocity Mode and are equal to the TTL results.
