is there an option to compensate the laser beam width? I have the problem when i laser a small font it looks a little thicker than i designed it. I have this example here from my work, there you can define a small gap between the area and the outline. In this case .06mm
Can you include some screenshots of the file you are engraving, and a photo of the results you are getting including the type of laser cutter/engraver you are using and all the speeds and power etc from your fill?
What are you working with? A diode? A Galvo laser? A CO2 DSP laser cutter? What sort of setup do you have. You are still leaving a lot of information out, or perhaps I have missed something? Please be a bit more detailed about what you are working with.
Hi, it´s a brand new Sculpfun S10, Diode.
I just lasered a DMC on Metal, and you see that the black regions are thicker than the “non black” regions. On my work we make use of this “compensate laser beam” function, to reduce the thickness.
The closest thing to this is “dot width correction” but is only available for Image layers. I think the primary intent of the tool is to account for over darkening of areas due to beam width. I’m not certain but this might work for your purpose if you convert the vector data matrix to a raster image.
First, you can try to lower the line width (Zeilenintervall) to 0.08mm (318DPI) which is the native resolution of the S10 laser beam. Test again, and then we can check if there are other compensation methods.
That should really only account for overlap within the fill area. It shouldn’t account for burn outside the fill area which is what I believe the original post is about. Only beam width would account for that.
