Here’s my first major project on my Maslow. My sister runs a Kona Ice truck, so I decided to make her some signs to point customers in the direct of her truck. Since I can’t paint anything free handed, I engraved both sides of the sign so I could “color in the lines”… It took approx 2 hr. to engraved the first side & approx. 3 hr. to engraved & do the full depth cut on the 2nd. side. I learned a lot with this project. I had the base of my sign too close to the corners of the MDF sheet, so they weren’t very accurate & I had to cut the base down a little.
Impressive! And that’s with the older bracket system. I love how you stepped down some surfaces - I never thought to do that. You have any special painting technique or just paint the pockets?
You set up the g-code file yourself off an image? That seems daunting and time consuming for such a detailed cut like this. Would you mind sharing a quick summary of your process for prepping your g-code?
PS: I think you might need a softer chair to sit and watch it cut - perhaps a nice lazy boy…
