Newbie here with a newbie question.
Which is better for grayscale, an 8-bit or 32-bit board? I’m guessing an 8-bit because of the 256 grayscale scale. My 32-bit allows an S=1000 and I’m not sure this is necessarily a good thing and here’s why…
I’m thinking the wood burns the same amount within the finer granularity of 32 bit over the coarser range of 8-bit. Another words the difference in burn between S=500 thru S=600 would appear pretty much the same versus S=100 thru S=150. I’m not sure what the scaling is between 8 vs 32 bit, but you get the idea.
So I’m thinking 8-bit is better even tho my 32 bit allows more grayscale. Are my thoughts on this flawed somehow?
BTW I’m using a FoxAlien 20 Watt (wink-wink) blue (450) diode and have a 800mw UV (405) diode as well. That and a Chinese K40 that works great for cutting.
