    Default Laser Engraving on a Macbook Pro

    Does anyone know where I can get my MacBook Pro laser engraved (Melbourne would be best)

    Something along these lines (with my own image)

    Look in the yellow pages under engravers, usually someone will point you in the right direction

    The issue is that CNC engravers cost in the tens of thousands of dollars, meaning that a single job like this will cost a bomb. Still, keep trying - you might find someone with a home-made CNC miller or something like that out there.

    Can't find a suitable engraver? Can't afford a CNC milling machine?

    How about, build your own!

    I've been tempted for so long to make my own CNC miller Brains - but my rudimentary understanding of electronics always makes me step back. It'd be so good having one - I'd use it constantly (even if the DIY ones are slow as).
