“life is like a box of chocolates”…
Hi, I am trying to tune my K40 cutter for best grayscale engraving (voodoo science, I know…)
Loaded a GrayScale image i downloaded from the net and now trying to reach best outcome using different settings.
I have little experience in this field but it feels like Shape Properties should also be saved as part of the cut settings when the latter mode is “Image” - for what it worth.
it is almost impossible to use preview to predict the outcome and i mean: i never know which settings should i change to correct the outcome to match my image and/or desired outcome.
Gamma? Contrast? Brightness? Min power? Max Power / etc. i know it is hard to preview the laser output since it is not linear but it is equally hard, if not harder, to know which dial to tweak to fix the outcome. Best would be to use the camera to feedback the outcome for LB to adjust the input to match the output but i don’t know if this exists - for sure this is hard to do.
Long story short:
i am looking for a guidance for how to tweak LB image, and I mean methodology and best procedures for quickest best results.
BTW, it would be awesome to be able to tune Preview window based on the best settings, e.g - once we have good results we should be able to tweak Preview to match the outcome regardless of Preview zoom factor which reflects the scanning lines that makes it impossible to know what goes on.
