Hi again everyone so today i was running a file, while i watched the side’s of the engrave were as expected but the middle as it run through were light, not really getting enough of a burn, i’ve noticed it doing this before on birch ply, it buried the ends of each run but just lightly marked the centre,
i have also noticed that i normally cut 3mm white faced mdf with one pass, at 28% power 7mms while using k40 Whisperer but on Lightburn i have the laser set at 35% power, and use 100% of this in my lightburn settings, but need 3 passes at 3mms,
To double check i installed my old nano board again and run the same cut at 7mms and 28% power and cut straight through, so i must be missing a setting??, by the way 35% power on lightburn passes equates to 15ma, and 28% equates to 12ma on old board, so tube says its putting out the correct ma but laser impact via LB is not as strong, weird.
