Happy 4th of July! The folks at X-Laser write in:
We hosted a 4th of July barbeque for all the staff here at X-Laser and thought we’d have a little fun. After all, we make lasers, why not have a laser events on Independence Day! We lit fireworks with lasers, laser engraved burgers, steaks and hot dogs and of course enjoyed a few great laser shows in the warehouse.
We used an Epilog Helix 35W, I found that the sweet spot for hot dogs was 1200DPI, 14% speed and 100% power. We had less success rastering ground beef though, it seems to be better suited for vector engraving.
