    Another way to engrave a non-flat stock is to use a program like Autoleveller (Autoleveller | CNC workpiece levelling). It probes the stock surface and then adjusts the input G-code for the height variations. This method gives you precise cutting depth that does not vary with the RPM or the feed speed.

    That autoleveller software looks pretty interesting, would be useful for surfaces like PCBs for sure.

    I checked the autoleveller site, it says it works with Mach 3 and LinuxCNC. Has anyone tried it with Pathpilot yet?

    No one seemed to mention PathPilot on the Autoleveller forum, you should probably ask that question there. In principle, you should be able to make it work, as long as PathPilot supports a probing move (such as G31 in Mach3) and a file write command (such as M40/M41 in Mach3).
