I know there are already topics about this, but I don’t think the problem is well understood. I’m trying to engrave a large image on my BOSS 1420.
If I choose true grayscale, the software seems to want to send the entire file, and the laser throws the error as soon as transmission starts.
On the exact same file, it started to burn the job once, but then stopped after a few lines. Usually it doesn’t even start before the controller gives the error. At this point, you have to hit ESC on the controller.
Note that LB does not have any way to abort the transmission of the job, so you either must wait until it’s finished, or kill LB with taskmgr.
Here’s the thing: if I switch to a dithered method it works better, but evetually the controller gives the error. Exact same image in the exact same position.
So I don’t believe that this issue is strictly related to position and acceleration of the head. It feels more like local memory limitations on the Ruida to me.
Rather than try to understand the details on the Ruida, I’d suggest that a nice LB feature would allow the user to tile the image and etch it in sections. I could obviously do this in Photoshop and then import multiple images into separate LB layers, but seems like a very useful feature to make it easy in LB.
