The proper settings are the ones that work for the material you’re using, the image, the laser, your power supply and wattage, beam type, and so on. Which is to say, there is no “best settings” that someone can simply hand you without knowing a whole lot more about what you’re planning to use them on.
You’re better off using something like a gradient fill so you can see the different shading, and how well it matches the original. The focal length of the lens will affect your dot size - A shorter focal length gives a smaller dot, which in turn affects how high you can go on DPI. Trial and error is unfortunately the best method, and even then the content of the source image will affect the choices you make for settings.
Oh thanks. I might change it slightly to be more printer friendly (using les space) . And I’ll add text to indicate the other settings used. Speed, power etc. I want to be as complete as possible to have the best framework for later reverance.
Instead of a circle using a line seems better for testing multiple settings.
For each test I Wil assign a other lightburn colour so that each colour can have difrent settings. That way I should be able to print the test batch in 1 go.
As for what speed and power to use, I already made a test blok for that, so I’m thinking of using 3 or 4 difrent settings.
As for what to toggle, speed I would like to be fast for Lazer time. So probebly only be toggling power.
wel worshope opened to a select number of people. and i went in and did a few tests.
one of the tests was the gradiant fill /scalle test.
ill post some pictures tomorow.
i also did some tests with my lion image. did not get the result i expected.
at times it burned the center of the lion also. even togh i did not want it to do so.
i gues its a settings thing. i would have to see if i can tweak it.
