Hi everyone at Adafruit. I wanted to thank you for the Laser Stamp making tutorial. I just produced $400.00 worth of stamps out of $10.00 in material! … I hate paying so much for these stamps, and you saved us a bunch of money with the tutorial.
Anyway, I wanted to say the tutorial helped me greatly. Here are the stamps I made with my new Epilog Helix 40 (cuts like 50).
Also, this gray rubber I used was very easy to cut with no flame issues. But, I had to save the cutting for the last step, as my stamps took 3 runs (40 speed 100 power) with cleaning after each raster run to avoid flashing. When I used the individual fences to vector cut them out (15, 100, 100), I had to horizontal mirror them on my own since the pure vector operation of the Epilog driver won’t do it if you aren’t rastering a stamp I guess. Maybe my last run could have been combined. That may have worked great too.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
