- While people might have a “cheat sheet”, you should create your own as there are a lot of factors involved.
Try this first. Material Cut/Scan Test Files - Power Scale make notes in google sheets for each type of material you are engraving/cutting.
- I started with Laser GRBL and it had an option (looks like a light bulb) to show where your beam is. Does Lightburn have a similar feature?
You are talking about the “fire” laser feature. Yes, lightburn has it.
If you have a diode laser, and need to turn it on at low power to focus it, LightBurn has a setting for this. First, in Edit → Device Settings, click the “Enable Laser Fire Button” shown here in the lower right: [image] . Then quit, and restart LightBurn. In the Move window, you’ll find the Fire button and the power setting at the lower right: [image] . Set the power just high enough for you to see the laser when you enable the Fire button
