Engraving Aluminium

  • Hi folks!

    I have just tried to engrave something in an aluminium plate (50x20 mm).

    I was not very confident on having a good result, but to my surprise it finally came out quite good.

    I used a black edding 500 permanent marker pen to paint the surface to engrave first, let it dry for 1/2 min (yes, I hace no patience at all 😅) , then engraved and to finish I used solvent and a soft cloth to remove the black paint.


    2.5W Elekslaser
    T2 Laser
    Resolution 0.1
    black edding 500 permanent marker pen

    As you can see in the photos below there is not much difference when using different speeds. I also tried with 2 passes and still not much difference.

    Hope it helps for your future engravings!!

    @alvar0.ga That looks really good, it's amazing what you can engrave with these low power diodes.
