creating variable thickness in drawing lines
Hi, welcome! You can’t change the thickness of lines because they are vectors. They are of ‘infinite thinness’ and describe a line between two points.
What is it that you are trying to achieve?
You can not change the thickness of the laser beam. You could only fill a thin shape.
In fact, you can indirectly, by using Z-offset (defocusing the beam).
I thought about that but I would only use it with a program controlled z axis.
For sure! I have a motorized bed and use it quite often when someone wants a more present line engraving.
Looks like I should try that too. Sometimes I have a lot of engravings and a few cuts. There it would be worth it.
I recommend you to make an example sheet on a piece of wood. See how thick the lines get when you move Z for -1mm, -2mm, -3mm, -5mm, -8mm etc. so you know what to choose.
Yes. Will do that!
