Etching + Cutting. (Holes for the flowers are added to image)
I thought Laser cutter etching recognize only two color value-0, 255. But on the second test, I found weird bright mark inside of the branch. (This mark was on the first test board as well) According to photoshop color picker, there’s 254 value white.
Otherwise, I like this etching. I gave me appropriately burned image, which is similar to the silhouette image of the Maehwa tree.
Etching + Cutting on Paper
Now I got the another problem. In my expectation, Laser cutter is going to make dark image on my paper, but it made brighter image instead. I guess this is material matter. Brightness of the etching is depends on what materials I use for it..
I’m planning on making a light with ultrasonic distance sensor(in PComp class).
If a viewer get closer to the piece, the moon will get brighter.
