I have been using Lightburn on a Chinese AEON 100W Laser with Ruida controller and have an issue when stepping out multiple items. The file is a simple round coaster that was drawn in Lightburn and has some Fill engraved wording and some Cut graphics ( where the cut speed is 400mm/sec and 20% power) and then a final cut to cut through 3mm ply( cut speed 20 mm /sec @ 80%power).
As a single file this engraves and cuts fine in Lightburn. The issue is when it is stepped out 6 across x 5 down for 30 up the result is that the engraving varies from the final cut and I suspect it is mostly in the Y direction. Sometimes some of the engraved lettering is moved and distorted. Whenever a file is stepped out for multiple items both ways this issue occurs.
Today, I converted the LBRN File into an AI file and downloaded the same file into RD Works (First time I have ever used this program),stepped it out 6 across x 5 down and it engraved perfectly. Everything was concentric and identical on each of the 30 items.
I must have something wrong with my Lightburn configuration.
A similar issue I have relates to repeat operations and Origin moving between each time you stop and start. If I have a number of pieces already made and I want to then engrave a different name on each one the following occurs. Using User origin in the centre of the file and locating a piece with the centre marked it will engrave correctly. The piece is located in a jig so the next piece is in the exact same spot.
Remove the piece and put a new piece in and the origin on the laser will shift about 0.5 in the Y direction. If you keep doing additional pieces the Origin keeps moving each time the process is repeated.
Thanks in anticipation of any advice and assistance you can give,
