Epilog Zing 16 Laser Engraver


Wrote Lizzie Wade in the November 2012 issue of Wired: "Being the office Halo champion feels good. Engraving the words "HALO CHAMPION" onto a brass plaque and displaying it on my desk feels even better. All I have to do is upload the phrase to the Zing 16 and hit Go. (It recognizes a multitude of file formats, including PDF, EPS, even Word docs) The $7,995 device uses a 30-watt infrared CO2 laser to smoothly etch my input into almost any material — wood, plastic, aluminum, stone, meat — as long as it's less than 4.5 inches thick and 12 by 16 inches across. The Zing 16 has endless practical applications. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm go to go chow down on a piece of beef jerky that's been scorched with the visage of George Lucas."

From experience:

You may be good at design,

but mastering substrates, wood, metal, plastics, etc.

the machines power, speed, etc. settings

takes time, especially with wood.
