i’m new here and i’ve had an engraving machine for a few weeks. i engrave wood with and we make our packaging boxes that way. we now have the problem that no matter which engraving method we use, the engravings always look a little different. we first engraved with the “grayscale” method, the first and second were great, but then the results got worse and worse. especially the gray gradations and de details become worse/weaker. then we tried with the method “atkinson”, here the same - even if we engrave three with each other (in the pictures, the left super, middle bad, right average) → they should all come out the same.
what we checked: focus / angle / dirt on the lens - everything seems to be ok…
settings: laser power max 80% min 0% speed: 4000 / 300+ dpi / and we tried all 3 filling methods
graver: neje master 2s plus with 30w laser head
we are grateful for any tip and thank you already for your help
best regards and happy easter
