I am trying to improve the quality of the burn on a sign and also speed up the settings. I am running a Jtech 7w diode laser on a Shapeoko 3XXL.
The sign on the left has a scan angle of 0. I am happy with the boldness of the writing in this sign, but the blank under lines are very faint. How can I make them bolder?
The sign on the right has a scan angle of 45. The boldness of the blank lines is excellent. It is hard to see in the picture, but the letters in “hello world” seem pixelated/jagged.
Can anyone suggest how to improve my settings to make a better image with a normal to faster pace speeds? These 4 inch rounds took around 20 mins to etch.
