I’m running into an issue with one of my lasers but, I’m just not sure if its hardware or software.
Laser 1) 50w witha Rudia 6442s board ( the white and blue one from ebay)
Laser 2) 45w ( it was originally 50w) with a Rudia 6442s board ( converted from Top wisdom TL-410C) ( ( the red and black one from ebay)
File I used with engravings from L1 and L2
Settings I used:
Laser 1 engraves and cuts perfect. Laser 2 cuts and engraves solid black and white perfect but doesn’t engrave gray-scale/dithered images well. Whenever I try to engrave gray-scale, with laser 2, it’s never “smooth” like laser 1 and it seems to be engraving double lines ( see tail of yoshi on image 2).
I did the usual: cleaned the mirrors, realigned everything, made sure none of the belts were loose, did a tilted board test ( not sure of the correct name) to see where the laser was the sharpest and engrave from there, and even tried flipping the lens on the laser head.
Now I’m not sure if there is a wire I didn’t wire up correctly or if it’s some setting. I’d greatly appreciate the help. Thanks!
