So I’m working on a few projects that have layers that require AIR for cutting, and then some layers that required LESS AIR for engraving… I have a BOSS LS2436 and I can control the air flow on a per layer basis… but I can’t control the AIR FLOW per layer. So, what I end up having to do is pause the laser myself and screw out on the valve to increase the airflow for a CUT layer.
I was wondering if it would be possible to add in a layer option into LightBurn that would essentially “PAUSE” the laser until you hit the enter key or something on the keypad to let it move to the next layer of work. This would give you time to adjust the air valve and increase or decrease the pressure for that particular layer.
Is there a better way to do this? I’ve been thinking about running a second air line to the head and basically having an always on low pressure air stream as an option. Thoughts?
