Just showing off… these photos were engraved using my new GCC LaserPro C180 II laser engraver… It arrived yesterday, so I am still learning how to use it…

Wow—you can get so much more subtle—- wait, is that even a concept… much more subtle…? shading with a laser than I can with the CNC.

Yes Joe, laser done..
Karen, I had a comment… just like pyrography but subtle… I agree the degree of subtleness is outstanding…

Awesome! I love laser engravers. My brother in law works for Epilog and I got to tour the factory a few years ago, needless to say it was EPIC. I watched him load an image and then engrave it within minutes.

Maybe I should get a laser engraver too.
Can you engrave metals with your model?

Amazing amount of detail. How long did it take to do the aircraft carrier?

Wow, that baby pic freaks me out a little bit. Like a ghost baby that lives in the board.
Pretty sure I’m not describing it very well, not to mention this is probably a close relative of yours. I mean no offense, just that it has a Harry Potter-esque quality to it.
