I released a video where I engraved over 50 different materials including wood, metal, plastic, masonry, fabric and a few others: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5AkSfq8cPU
I’m including all of the speed and power settings used in the video: https://bit.ly/39LSmkK
Many of the settings above are loosely based on the community settings: https://bit.ly/34fhe3d
Also, if you need to cut metal, SendCutSend is a great resource:

I’d love to hear about some interesting materials you’ve worked with in your laser cutter. I was a long-time X-Carve user; a laser cutter and CNC machine pair really well with one another.
Thanks for watching!
