Making Countersunk Holes

Ever wanted to include countersunk holes in your laser cut items? Well it’s possible, and quite easy! See photos below:

Unfortunately this website does not allow me to upload the BeamStudio file!! However, I am very happy to email to anyone that asks.

How? What settings? Would love to see a video.

I just draw a series of concentric circles 0.05 mm apart. Then set each with a different power/speed setting such that the inner circle cuts right through, but the others cut to successively shallower depths until the outer one is just cutting through the backing paper. It took me a while to get the correct settings!

If you send me your email address I will send you a copy of the Beam Studio file for use with 3mm acrylic sheet and size 6 woodscrews.
