Noobie to laser cutting but I do have some experience with router and plasma cnc. I’m working on a project with J Tech 7W laser attached to a Shapeoko 3.
Here is my dilemma. If I lower the power of the laser it doesn’t start to cut until it has traveled some distance leaving me with an incomplete cut part. If I increase the power it cuts immediately but there is burning of the material. When working with plasma cnc I’m able to create a led-in to allow to compensate for this but I’ve learned this is not possible in Lightburn.
Any ideas on how to get through the material so I can cut at a lower power for less scorching?
