What is 3D Laser Engraving and how does it Work?

3D labyrinth

3D laser engraving is a fantastic process that creates 3D engravings of photos, designs, logos, etc. on varied materials. With 3D laser engraving, the laser is usually set to allow the dark areas of the material to receive maximum power while the lighter areas skip engraving altogether. The shades in between receive varying power for the best 3D appearance. In addition, the laser machine adds sloped edges to the product at different depths. The result is a breathtaking 3D work of art.

Must-know safety precautions when using a laser engraver

Laser engravers cut or engrave material by the power laser beams they emit. This laser beam can be quite disastrous if caution is thrown to the wind. Some of the hazards include fires, combustion of hazardous items, burns, and fumes. Once you have bought your laser engraver and are ready to start making your engraved items, take a moment to consider the safety procedures first.
