Hi, I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! I have a job with a FILL layer, LINE layer for scoring with a Z offset and a final LINE layer for cut. I’m using a Sunlight Laser machine with a Ruida controller at a local makerspace. I turn on ‘Enable Z Axis’ and ‘Relative Z moves only’. I can’t use the machine now so I can’t try this but I wanted to ask and get ready.
1- When the job starts, the FILL layer fills the texts.
2- I have a LINE layer with a Z offset. This LINE layer has a lot of scorings. The bed moves correctly, but it moves back and forth on every line of the layer.
3- The bed moves back to it’s initial Z height and does the cut with the other LINE layer.
I didn’t have time to try it but if I enable ‘Optimize Z moves’ will the machine do all the scoring on layer 2 without adjusting the bed height for every line on the same layer? Anything I should be careful about?
