In my original post I was having issues with the letters I typed on the Lightburn software being etched a little crooked. We tried tightening the belt, loosening, etc.
We finally fixed it! And the engraving is cut in half by like 60%
Here is my solution if you want to make nice letters:
- Go into adobe photoshop
- Create a new file
- Type your text
- Delete background layer
- Crop to size
- Export as .PNG
- Import .png file into Lightburn!
This may not be a fix all for everyone, but in my case it was night and day difference. We are still trying to fix the issue of engraving on actual aluminum, we are thinking a more powerful laser, but for our more expensive panels, the laser we have (15w) will do the trick.
I hope this helps anyone who may have issues. If you have questions please let me know. I will try to post pictures when I get caught up with work.
Have a great day
