    My first laser cut panel

    This is the first panel I have cut and engraved to allow illumination of the text.
    It is the Fuel Panel for the A10C.


    Any comments would be appreciated

    Comments? What comments? I mean, other than it looks fantastic, and 'job well done!" what other comments would apply? Great job Is this your first project, or have you had the laser for a while? Again, great job.

    I think it looks great. It took me many tries before seeing anything like yours.

    Re: My first laser cut panel

    I am testing a different setup, I am painting the face and then engraving through the paint, I have tested the engraving so it only engraved 2 microns deeper than the paint. It seems to work without leaving any decearnable feel to the engraving . I will re-cut the full panel once testing for fumes from the paint is completed and I will video the cutting and upload it if anybody is interested.
