Hello,

I have been thinking about buying a EGX-350, but can't find any pictures of any detailed engravings.

I keep getting requests to engrave football logos and company logos etc onto the back of watches I sell online. Some of the logos are really detailed and would have to be no bigger than 30mm. I am struggling to find a machine that is capable of this and is not over £10,000 (Datron and Haas CNC's)

Is this machine capable of shallow high detailed engravings?

If anyone has got any pictures please post them it would help me out a lot.

I could make you some sample engravings if you send me the designs. I'll make photos of the result.

That would be great.

What file format would you like them in?
Is Artcam ok?

Thanks

I don't have Artcam (anymore). Any vector format is fine. PDF or CDR for example?

Will a vector image produce a 2D engraving?

I am wanting a 3D engraving, like a coin for example.

Like a coin in terms of depth and level of detail.

Can it engrave an image like the eagle in the picture?
