It takes around 3-12 hours depending on the settings for the type of wood and how much dark areas there are on image.

RE: Image Engraving on Gmelina and Mahogany
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.
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.
