I found the image I wanted to use by doing a google image search for ‘eagle black and white’.
I loaded the image into VCarve Pro, resized it, did an image trace on it, and then went straight to the toolpath controls. The toolpath I created follows @PhilJohnson’s approach on his web site - http://www.designsbyphil.com/cnc-laser.html - specifically the sections on ‘V CARVE LASER TOOL SETUP’ and ‘V CARVE LASER ENGRAVING’.
I use the JTech 2.8W laser. It is typically focused to 3" but, due to the thickness of the material and the limited height on my Z, I had to refocus it for what I had. I then used UGS to load and run the gcode. It took about 40 minutes to do.
Hope that helps.
