Having a camera on your Muse is great for aligning your projects, but did you know you can use the camera to scan on your RetinaEngrave 3 software and trace hand drawn images? We’ve made a step-by-step video to show you how!
Here are the steps:
Step One: Tape Material
The first step is to apply masking tape over your material, where you want to trace. This will allow a smooth surface to draw your design.
Step Two: Draw Design
Next draw your design on the tape. Be sure you use a thick black pen and draw in big bold lines.
Step Three: Capture Workspace
Place the material with your drawing into the Muse workbed. Next, capture the workspace using the RetinaEngrave camera controls. Just click the camera icon and follow the steps.
Step Four: Vectorize
Now click the Vectorize icon. Place your mouse at one edge of the image and drag to highlight the entire trace image.
Step Five: Edit & Settings
Click the project icon under layers in RE3 on the left side of the screen.
Then set your power, speed and threshold preferences on the right side of the screen.
Step Six: Run Job
Click the Run Icon and let the laser do its thing. Then, just remove the masking tape and you are done!
