Enclosure Marking

I recently thought I would try a new technique for marking electronic project enclosures, I have had a K40 Laser engraver sitting in the garage for a while now, and I had a waveform generator kit I had bought from maplin just before they closed.

K40 Engraved project enclosure for a waveform generator

This was a great opportunity to try out a new way of marking the enclosure, for this project I used a stock 1590B enclosure from Hammond with a black powdercoat and designed the front panel in Corel draw. The enclosure was then loaded into the K40 and engraved twice at a 30% setting.

After drilling and fitting the buttons and pots the enclosure looked like below, the text is clear and easy to read, now if only I could drill the LED holes in a straight line it would look quite professional
