How to use MC Etcher

I am trying to learn how to use the MC Etcher on my Shapeoko Pro, I have been searching for information on how to set my Z. I know that I need to use the “paper method” to set Z but what “depth of cut” does everyone use? What tool path do you use in the “free CC” software?
I want to try etching acrylic for lighted signs and just need some help figuring it out.

I wrote a bit about this at:

I just read thru your process and I appreciate the response to my question!! I will give it a shot and see how it goes.
Do you happen to have a picture of the finished product from your “tutorial” that you linked to me?

Just posted:

That turned out very nice! Thank you for sharing and your time of replying to me!
