Variable text - Request - Cut Setting - Expression for Number of passes

Variable text - Cut setting is pretty cool for making test pattern and indicating what setting where used for those different tests, one can have a generic file and simply test different setting without having to retype all the labels for them. I typically use the following expressions under each circle to be cut. C00, P, S I wish there was a way to add the number of passes as well, is this a variable that is planned for the future? Any other cut setting are planned to be added later?

17 days left on my trial and i’m loving it :smiley:

I can add pass count easily enough. It’ll be in the next release.


Pretty new to Lightburn and thinking on a similar thread, I have done test passes on different materials line and fill which is great to see what my LM2 20w can do using the array setting with a grid and reduction in power down the scale using the Power Scale in Shape Properties.
I’m trying with another array grid to do a similar as above using a line cut but every which way I try to adjust the pass count it reverts to the last one changed on that colour, wanting to try up to 12 passes on 7 different speed settings needing 84 colours to do them individually, am I going about this wrong or am I over complicating this ?

The pass count is per layer. That said, if you want to do different numbers of passes in a single layer, just duplicate the shapes that number of times.

Is there anyway to show how many duplicates are of that shape ?

You can drag-select and the status bar will tell you how many shapes are selected. That’s really the only simple way.


Thank you, you are truly a Wizard.
