Aiming beams and burning things / or how to make a laser cutter denim swatch

After some trial and error and a few burned off-cuts the laser cutter was tamed and settings for cutting / engraving denim established. I left the swatch at the workshop so if you want to experiment with tattooing jeans your life will be much easier. We can slowly make a swatch library for every laserable material. Speed 100 / Power 30 / 500Hz seems to work pretty well for thin denim.
