Flames with test file

why ami getting a huge flame when making a light burn test file

Going too slow or using too much power.

Perhaps you’re thinking:

  • inch/min with the machine set to mm/min
  • inch/sec set to inch/min
  • mm/sec set to mm/imin
  • Most awful: inch/sec' set to mm/min`

Check Edit → Settings to see whether it agrees with what you’re thinking.

As a rule of thumb, diode lasers use inch/min in the US-of-A and mm/min everywhere else in the world.

Lasers always do what you tell them to, not what you meant. :grin:
