The Intelli-MAX Software Suite features an extensive set of tools designed to expand the capabilities of OMAX JetMachining Centers. One tool is Intelli-ETCH, which allows for 3D relief etching in most materials.
Intelli-ETCH is used to engrave patterns, logos or artwork into metal or other materials.
- Input is a bitmap (jpeg, bmp, png, etc.) where brightness corresponds to cutting depths.
- The OMAX Controller varies speeds to etch the desired pattern.
- Optional “mask color” can be set to etch non-rectangular areas.
- While this is not a precision operation, it is useful for artistic purposes.
- This is in addition to other standard etching and scribing tools.
