Hi Lightburn Community
I’m seeking some help: I’ve had this laser module for a few months now (Ortur laser master 2), and i’m starting to realize that maybe my laser isn’t at 100% despite settings on lightburn.
My current settings are 10 mm/sec, 100% power, and it requires 40 cuts/rounds to cut through 3mm plywood. Which comparing to online comments doesnt seem normal. There has been mention of a minimal power setting, but it must be from an old lightburn version, because i can’t find it to check if that is the issue. So are there any ways to check my laser, maybe through software, or if others find the ability of their machine is the same.
I also am unsure how to focus my laser, it seems focused, but doesnt seem to be manually twistable on the module, and i wonder if there is a automatic way to do it or tinker it through lightburn?
I feel very new to this software still and having a laser in general. I have also recently ordered a 30W Laser Module Laser Head, to hopefully double to efficiency, as 5 hours for a few cutouts of jewelry seems excessive. Which apparently can cut 3mm plywood in 1-2 rounds. So idk how it takes me 40 with half that power atm.
Also wondering if anyone has ever replaced their own laser on the Ortur 2 and if anyone has any links or advice for cheap installing of air assist/pressure, to also increase the efficiency of the laser.
Open to any ideas or suggestions.
