I recently got myself an 15W Arduino engraver off Aliexpress. After a few trials I managed to make it work, I can engrave with it in LaserGRBL, but that software does not provide me wit the capabilities I need to make my small projects. I need to be able to cut plastic sheets up to 0.5mm thickness with layers to be able to manage the cutiing order.
And here is my problem, Lightburn can do very well the job I need with nice round shapes and all, but even with 100% power set it cannot match the power output I get in LaserGRBL. Even if I set 4 passes it cant go through a 0.35mm black plastic sheet… Drives me nuts. I don’t know all the other specs (settings in the controller), but in LaserGRBL it supports M4 mode and if I increase the power setting it will be visible when working on plywood.
PLS HALP !!!
PS : this is the laser
