I’m using Lightburns and I love the simplicity of this software, and the ability to use vector designs and “fill” the shapes.
However, I have an issue with my low power diode laser.
When I’m using the “Fill + Line” mode, the laser doesn’t burn enough the start / end areas to fill (where the laser accelerates / decelerates).
I believe that is due to the fact that the laser power is not linear, or / and the material is not receptive enough to a low power beam.
I tried to change the “$31” setting to set a higher “min spindle speed”, but when I tried to use the laser afterwards, the laser beam was way weaker (I don’t understand why).
I wanted to change the “Power Min” setting on each layer, but the value is fixed (control disabled). Moreover, the value is not the same for each layer, and those values seem to be shared between all my project, per layer (name).
Could you explain to me why this setting cannot be edited ? And why it is shared between my projects ?
Will it help me to fix my issue ? Do you have another way to fix it ?
