hello i recently discover this amazing sofware and i´m trying, but i have a scale problem: imagine i want to burn a rectangle with 230 x 130 mm, but it burns a much less size…
here are the sentings:
Welcome and thanks for the post. You said, you…“want to burn a rectangle with 230 x 130 mm”, what size did you get as the result? What Device Profile have you selected and what are the settings for this profile?
I assume this is referencing my question about your choice for Device Profile. What did you select when setting up LightBurn for the first time? If you click the ‘Devices’ button in the ‘Laser’ window, you will see what you have selected when setting up devices. You can then edit this to ensure you have things set correctly. The document link I provided above is to our new (in progress) documentation that will walk you through the process.
$100 and $101 set the number of steps the machine has to take to move 1mm. If your output is half the expected size, you’d double those values.
You said 110 x 40 instead of 230 x 130, which is quite strange, because those aren’t the same shape at all - The X is about half, but the Y is less than 1/3rd. Did you enable rotary mode accidentally? Does the machine skip when it runs?
