NOTE: That rotary tool in the video is for the CO2 laser. I just used it as a jig to hold the urn still since it’s round and would have rolled away 😛 Fiber laser rotary tools can’t hold and turn that much weight, at least from what I have seen on the market – so we were stuck with tackling this manually.
I almost botched this urn! Seriously! Don’t worry though, we keep calm and right the ship with some clever parameter usage and on the fly thinking to save the job (and our profit). Check out this video to learn all about how to engrave urns, cheat focal limits and deal with brass engravings. Enjoy, and see you in the next one!
