I imported 2d barcodes from courier tickets two different ways:
- A PDF printout of the courier ticket was imported. It automatically identified the QR code as an image. That is the darker code in the attached file.
- A PNG printout of the courier ticket was imported. The image was converted to path using the attached settings. I then converted the barcode to bitmap (right click-convert to bitmap), using “Fill” with about 800dpi.
The results - 1 engraves faster (doesn’t decelerate/accelerate between dots; only at the edges). It is also slightly darker in the centre and obviously at the edges. It is also more sharply defined at the edges of the dots.
In both cases, 50mm/sec @45% power, on the same corrugated brown cardboard. I checked each object properties - they are the same.
I’m just curious why this might be, and if there is a way to get the same results as 1 using correct settings with method 2 above?
