I got a few anodized aluminum tags to experiment with, and tried to engrave our daughter’s dog’s name on one of them. This one has been gone over a number of times at different speed and power settings, and I tried both engraving and cutting (trying for a vector outline to get time missed area). I’m just not able to get the complete letter area removed, and the top of the “R” isn’t completely outlined. This hasn’t happened before on wood, silicone, or two layer acrylic tags. Am I missing something, or is this just how the K40 does anodized Al?
This is with the LaserDRW that came with my machine, using the default font.
After uploading I just noticed the writing on the fixture, engraved the same day, did the same thing. Looks like I might have accidentally messed up a setting, but I’ve got no idea what it might have been. Any ideas?
