engraving an anodized aluminum laptop lid

Over at shackspace I used the 50W CO2 Laser to personalize my latpop lid.

I think it turned out really well. The aluminium oxidizes and thus turns white.
Settings used: scanning with 500mm/s @100%.

As template I created a two color pixel image with 1200dpi resolution.
