Hi ya all. I have a K40 and just upgraded to mini Gerbil / lightburn
I’m struggling with engraving pictures - I bought an external script to work with photoshop and seen others photos of their work mine looks absolute pants compared to theirs
on wood my minimum marking the wood at Speed 150 is 8.5% and dark is about 15 to 16% I’ve tried pass through (as dithered externally) and grayscale - I’ve set Smax and $30 to 2000
On another issue I found that the head moves fast which has caused the 2nd mirror nuts to come loose (notices mirror movement on engraving) to align mirrors how do I do test fire and also release rail
Final issue Ive bought a new batch of ply (3mm) same supplier Popular B/BB which I have had previously. my last batch was birch BB/BB. This has the feel and weight of balsa - I can break it between my finger and thumb. it cuts like a knife to hot butter and like for like speed and power it engraves far too deep and even though I have reduced speed / power it does not have the detail. Has anyone else had wood like this.
Thanks in advance and have a happy crimbo
