What equipment do I need to start engraving?

The exact tools you'll need can depend on the type of engraving you want to do and the materials you plan to work with. Our experts can help you decide on the right machine for you, but here is a general overview of what you’ll need to get started in the endless possibilities of engraving!

First, select a machine. You can choose between rotary engraving machines, laser engraving machines, and CNC routers. Each type has its own set of capabilities and is suitable for specific applications. Laser engraving machines are an excellent place for novice creators to begin.

Once you’ve decided on the machine that’s right for you, ensure you have a computer that will enable you to run the machine and the engraving software. Popular software options include CorelDRAW, Adobe Illustrator, and dedicated software provided by machine manufacturers.

Personal protective equipment and a ventilation or fume extractor are highly recommended for anyone working with the fumes and particles generated during the engraving process. We also recommend checking your workspace’s electrical capabilities to ensure that it can handle the power the machine requires.

Depending on the machine you choose, other needed accessories may include cleaning supplies, extra lenses, and tubes. Our support team can help guide you through the needs of your specific machine, the equipment set up, and choosing the best material.
