I just got my new Eleksmaker a3 pro a few days ago, i’ve been tinkering with the original elekscam, but it didn’t work at all and was throwing many error messages, then i tested t2laser buuuut it would stop working because i had no license (even on their own sample engravings), so i ended up trying Lightburn.
I have a Eleksmaker A3 pro with a 2500mw laser and i flashed to grbl 1.1.
Its working really good so far and i like the interface, but im having problems trying to get grayscale images working, it works, but not as expected, it makes much lighter burn when its supposed to use 100% power (on full dark areas), maybe i need to do something or configure some parameters im not aware of.
This is the image i tried to engrave to properly test the grayscale things (since im a new user and i cant upload multiple images, i did it with imgur):
And this is what the laser did (speed 60 mm/s with grayscale dithering):
(Ignore that the image is flipped, im dumb and i connected the motors wrong)
For additional info, i did this thing with Threshold just before doing the image above, you can see the burn areas are darker:
Im using some birch plywood sheets i bought on amazon (A4 size with 3mm height)
Thanks in advance
