Engraving Different Depth for 3D Laser Engraving Effect on Supawood on TruCUT Lite Laser Machine

On today’s episode we learn how to engrave different depths on supawood to create 3D engraving effect by making use of the CO2 TruCUT desktop laser and engraving machine from AM.

In essence, Laser engraving is the process by which a laser beam removes parts of a material's surface to create an image that can be both seen and felt. The laser creates high heat during the engraving process, causing the material to vaporize. The laser beam can also be instructed to cut through a variety of materials like wood, acrylic, leather, cork, etc.

Most commonly, laser engraving is used to personalize an object with a logo or a brand or a name of some sort. This increase in personalization is leading to the widespread use of laser engraving, with a plethora of home businesses offering the technique as a way to provide a unique item for a wedding, birthday, anniversary, special corporate event or promotional giveaway.

Now moving onto today’s central point which is known as 3D engraving…this process allows you to print an entire object, right around. Laser cutters etch/engrave items and also cut pieces for 3D modelling. They can engrave on almost all materials such as wood, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and much more.
