thanks Rick. thought i had it nailed with power cycle but still giving issues - will get back to that one later on…
irritating me now is travel lines… I tried the $32=1 but then the same power setting [20%] does nothing to my image.
anything else i could try, thanks
gosh sorry and thanks but it’s all very confusing - i’m new to all the programming inputs/ language so struggling to make sense of it…I like the program but it’s rather overwhelming for a newbie like myself
here are my current machine settings below. could you possibly suggest inputs that i could try to solve the line trace burning issue please?
This is one issue you are having. Did you enter $32=1 into the console, then hit Enter/Return? Looks like this is still not set correctly. Additionally, you will need to change the remaining settings as described in the link I provided above.
hi. i entered $32=1 but didn’t adjust anything else and so no burn on an outline cut. just tried:
$110/ $111 = 500
cut speed 3000
and IT WORKED!!
extremely happy for now. thanks a MIL!! will process the rest of your notes tomorrow
These are the maximum speeds for your X and Y axis in mm/minute. If you set a speed higher than that, you won’t get it. In Laser Mode ($32=1) the machine will reduce the output power instead, because it can’t go as fast as you asked for.
If I draw a line at 1000mm/min, at 100% power, and a second line at 500mm/min, but 50% power, they’ll look the same because the amount of power deposited per second is the same. The machine is trying to produce the level of burn that you’re asking for, because you’re telling it to go way faster than it is allowed to.
