No matter what speed I set the speed to in lightburn it doesn’t change the speed on my LS1630 Boss Laser. The fastest setting I can set is at is 198 in/sec., unless this setting is the fastest it will go. If I set the speed to 10 in/sec it still goes the same speed.
We have this 100 watt laser for about 2 months. Bought it new. We have done several thing with this machine and has been doing fairly well. We have recieved our first order to fulfill and things are not acting like they used to.
We are engraving stainless steel military style name tags. We have the power settings at 80 percent but the amp meter is less than 10mA (100 watt laser). I have had the power set to 60 percent before and the mA was over 20 mA. At 80 percent power the laser doesn’t even remove the finish.
We have engraved several pieces of wood. Done a lot of flood fill.
We are now experiencing lines in the flood fill areas instead of flood filling. We also have the flood fill option checked. Lines per inch (lpi) is set at default which is 234.81. If we move the lip to 2100 lpi we actually get flood fill. However, we used to get flood fill at the default settings.
When we first start using lightburn, when we would select fill in the cuts and layers box it would show the areas as filled. Now in order to see what is filled or not we have to go to the preview section to see what the final artwork looks likes.
Is this program issue, laser issue or operator error? We need to figure something out. Thanks
