Hi there Mr. Beam-Community!
Just wanted to share my lucky pick on my first try to laser on stone.
All the following experiments didn't turn out nearly as well. But I won't give up.
Greeting from Cologne (Germany)
P.S.: I love my Mr.Beam!
By the way: My lucky pick was a natural stone tile (mat) from the lokal hardware store.
Engraving settings: Intensity = 80% , speed = 400
1. The lucky pick - Can anyone explain the physics (chemistry?) behind this phenomenon to me?
2. Failed experiments with other stones found on the banks of the river rhine, the cretan coast and a deko store:
3. More experiments that turned out quite interesting:
4. The "natural stone tile" (mat) that worked perfectly.
@MyLou - I love this work. Could you share the supplier/producer of the stone mat (maybe with picture of the box?!) Would be great!
@MyLou - I also live near the river rhine (5km). So I don't have to try some pebbles from there ;-)
Which was your local hardware store? O.., Hornb..., Bauh...?
Thank you once again!!!
@Samuel: Great! Thank you!!!
You can buy the mat I took the stones from at "to..-baumarkt".
It costs only about 4 € and looks like this:
Have fun lasering!
Cool, thank you very, very much! I will try them this weekend!
