In my first adventure of laser etching, I had a frustrating and rewarding time.
I was confused about the difference between Raster and Vector etching, so it took a few tries to prepare the files correctly. Here’s the piece as we showed in class for our midterm:
Next week, we will put on the finishing touches:
- Etch the spiral onto the gear in the back
- Add a tree for the cat to hide behind
- Add the cat’s smile
- Possibly add some other characters to the gears under the box
