OK so say you set a shape to do 20 passes , 20 times around the entire shape right. I have a diode and my laser on certain thicknesses of wood has to make either 4 passes or 20 to get thru fully.
When the laser makes 1 pass, with me watching it and counting manually with my eyes (Glasses on) the console is speeding up saying it’s already on like 5 passes around the shape and so forth. Each pass I assume is one full time around the shape either circle, rectangle etc right?
If I have the cut set at 20 cycles (Passes) around the shape, the console says it’s at 20 meaning it’s done it’s passes but its only on like its 5th time around the shape.
Over passing sorry meant to say my settings to cut many of the same shapes out of wood only takes 10 times around the piece. I use the console to detect when the shape drops from the cut wood. I then add 2 more times to the total to be safe once I get the count in the console this example the total would be 12 passes or times around the shape I’m cutting out of wood. I don’t want the laser wasting time going around a project say 8 extra times when it doesn’t have to and it thus cuts down on run time. That’s what I meant by “Over Passes”. meant going around the shape more times than it has to since it’s already fully cut.
Does that help?
This morning I started a job and as soon as I hit start the console already said it was on pass 5 out of10 before it even finished it’s first time around the shape. Each pass in the console for using the line setting is 1 full time around the shape is it not?
I can easily use my eyes to count with glasses on but sometimes I try to rely on the console line passes in case I miss count. Just noticed the pass count in lightburn lately has been speeding up and never noticed that before happening that’s all.
