Nice cards. Are these special cards for a presentation or just to hand out? Gonna take a while doing them one at a time if it's for just general hand out. But they do look nice!

Mark those are neat!

What are those lines? (Yellow circles) Is that from the engraving?
Are you able to do a spiral fill? You should be able to get a prismatic look.
Diamond drag?

What I usually do if I have any objects within text is separate them.
For instance, the rhombus trapazoid funky shape with the M.
I would engrave the shape slightly less into the surface than the M.
Once the M is engraved it is more pronounced and is a tad deeper.
Engraving the M & shape as a whole procduces unwanted results.
Maybe its the way it calculates the 'route'. Give it a try sometime.

The funny mark on the m on this one is also on their business card. All of these cards were scanned and traced

I am sure that they will like them. It is great to have people who you have met once (John) and those who you have not met yet (Dave) to help and guide me with these projects. When I retire full time then I will be able to learn all the tricks and hopefully help a newbie like me.
Look forward to meeting all my cnc buddies some day! Retirement is still a few years away for me as well. Thanks Mark!
