Is it possible to have a “max power” setting somewhere in options to reflect the maximum percentage power the machine can output?
For example, I have a higher rated power supply than my tube can handle (42% power gives me 20-21mA) and I’ve set the limit in the DSP so it can’t go over 42%
Right now in Lightburn, if I set power to anywhere from 43% to 100%, the DSP just limits it to 42%.
Would it be possible to add a parameter in the settings to say “Max power is 42%” so when in cut settings, if you set something to cut at 100%, it sends 42%, if you set it to 50%, it sends 21%, etc.
A more advanced way of implementing this could be to say “at 30%, tube power is 15mA, at 42% tube power is 21mA. I have a 60w Tube” in order to try and “standardize” the percentages we’re working with
Of course, the math isn’t hard to do on your own, but if my machine’s “100%” from the perspective of the tube is instead “42%” from the perspective of the DSP, and your machine’s “100%” is “75%” at the DSP, sharing a lbm file would have vastly different results between different machines. If we could have a way of compensating and calibrating output power in software, the layer power numbers and material library numbers could stay (mostly) the same between machines (of similar power), cut/engraving parameters could be shared more easily, and .lbm files could require a lot less trial and error when shared.
