Prepare the Artwork

If you are using the Center-Center Engraving feature, set a new home position in the center of your piece using the red dot pointer as a guide. To ensure the graphic is placed where you want it, you may also draw an outline around the graphic and send it to the laser with 100 speed and 0 power, then turn on the red dot pointer at your machine’s control panel. Keep the lid to the laser open and watch the red dot pointer trace the outline. Back in your graphics software, adjust the graphic as necessary to fit the utensil.

Send to the Laser

Send the job to the laser with the correct parameters for your machine wattage. You can find recommended material settings in your machine’s manual. When using a metal marking compound, start with low speed and high power settings.
