I am new to laser cutting/engraving and also very new to Lightburn.
I own a Snapmaker 2 A350T with the 10W laser module.
I am trying to cut 6mm cardboard and with a testfile with different settings in Snapmaker Luban I was able to figure out the proper settings:
300mm Speed with 2 passes (1mm step down) at 100% power.
Due to limitations and a bug in the Luban software regarding sizing of workpieces when importing i switched to Lightburn. So far so good.
I then imported the workpiece and set the same cut settings as the ones i figured out in luban, so 300mm, 2 passes at 100% power.
The problem is that the cardboard starts burning now which did not happen when creating the g-code file in Luban with the exact same settings. So my guess is that i am missing a specific setting and i was hoping someone can explain the differences here for me?
I don’t think it is a focusing problem as i am focusing manually.
There should be a database with different materials and the settings used for cutting and engraving. But as the 10W laser module is pretty new i did not find any suggestions. Would be very helpful, right now as a laser cutter newbie it’s a lot of try and error.
For your problem:
You can change the power of the laser under “Cuts/Layers”. Just doubleclick the corresponding layer and you get the settings.
