    Default Acrylic edge lit sign

    Did this for a friend... The Knight has cards for a "mane" on his helmet. The detail was pretty good with a 60 degree V bit.... The friend has a multicolor LED set wrapped around it- set to blue..... They are working on a longer string of white LED's (or finding the correct power supply so they can set them to a white color!)

    Anyway- I was tickled with how well it turned out and how ecstatic my friend is...

    PHEW! That was a little bit of a chore!

    Sorry. The photo is a bot less crisp than the real thing!

    Looks good! To add photos from your computer directly, simply scroll down on the reply page to "Manage Attachments." That will let you browse your folders and upload to the forum - no need for linking to a photo somewhere else.

    Thanks Ron.

    I'm much obliged.

    (I hate it when the tech improves and I don't see it or don't "read the memo"!! HAHAHA!)

    Default Use Quick Engrave

    Great fun. We do lots of trophies and have found v-carve graphics work really well. Just let the program do its own thing - dont set depth. Text works brilliantly on Quick Engrave using .02 depth of cut. We use bog standard 90 degree bits.
