Quick Tip

Laser bottom up! Change the orientation of your laser to begin engraving from the bottom of the material upwards. This can be accomplished from the advanced tab in your print driver. This simple process will minimize the amount of residue being exhausted over previously engraved material and therefore ease your post fabrication clean-up efforts.
