I am fairly new to laser cutting and boy does it show! lol
I’m trying to cut through 1/8" hardboard (Masonite) using a 100w /Chinese laser. My settings are 70% power / 7mm speed / Air assist on / 1 pass. I have tried multiple settings and with and without air assist and multiple passes. Different speeds and power. I have not gone below 50% power.
What’s happening is, I am getting a TON of flame no matter which settings I use, leaving the cutout piece useless.
I am using the small compressor that came with the laser so that could definitely be the problem. I ordered an actual compressor today so I will see if that helps. Very much appreciate your help and time!
