How to Laser Engrave Ceramic Mugs and Tile
Learning how to laser engrave ceramic tile and mugs isn’t hard once you’ve worked out the basics. Before you get started, you’ll want to be sure you have the appropriate rotary attachment for your laser engraver when working with cylindrical materials such as mugs and tumblers. Laser engravers such as Mira Series lasers can be an ideal choice when looking to work with ceramic mugs while also being great for tiles.
Once you’ve created a design, you’ll want to upload it to your laser engravers software, ensuring that you make any necessary adjustments to the size and position of the design. Next, you’ll place your material into the laser engraver and begin the process of engraving. If you do not achieve your desired results, you may need to adjust your settings. Consider testing your design and technique to ensure that you have a more seamless experience with laser engraving, as achieving your desired result can take some practice.
Laser engraving of ceramics is just like engraving materials such as glass and acrylics and is simple once you’ve gotten accustomed to working with the material type.
