Re: engraving BRASS pet tags

Hi Welcome to the world of engraving. You have two options with pet tag engraving. The simplest is diamond drag, this is when you use a sprung diamond to scratch the surface with the spindle rpm off. This is great for neat, quick result, and although it is not deep enough to colour-fill, you can use...

Re: MPX90 & 95

Hi Jaffacat, IMG_2550a.jpg I have just engraved this photo of my daughter on the MPX-95. I did not make any changes to the photo in the Metaza software, just sized it to the object and sent to engrave. If you click on the image, you can zoom in. The two key differences between the MPX-90 and MPX-95 ...

If so, you would need to look at our EGX-600 (https://www.rolanddg.co.uk/products/engraving-machines/egx-400-and-egx-600-professional-cnc-engraving-machine) . Sublimation metal is thin, springy aluminium, which can be bent accidentally very easily. ...

Re: Testing with the ARM-10 3D Printer

Hi kcenan
The castable resin was from http://www.funtodo.net. We found parts printed well, and have heard from some jewellery customers that it casts well. You may need to change your investment to a harder phosphate bonded investment, similar to what is used for dental casting.

Re: EASY AND FAST CAM SOFTWARE FOR ROLAND SRM-20

Hi Spyros

All the software, including the CAM (Modela Player4), needs to be downloaded via the OnSupport site.

There is a card in the box with the link you need to follow - http://startup.rolanddg.com.

The site also includes useful tips on how to get the most out of the ARM-10.

Re: Dental and the DWX50

Hi Coris The material supplied by Juvora is a pure form of medical grade PEEK. It is fully bio-compatible and does not have the risk of allergies that metal has - the latest news about Dick van Dyke's reaction to his Titanium implants is likely to fuel the interest in alternative materials, such as ...

Re: Looking for a new machine...

Hi Andy,

Perhaps we can do a sample for you. That way we can time how long it takes and you can review the quality. If you want us to have a go, please send us some test material and we will speak to Vectric/Delcam about getting a sample image file.
