Then you should do a burn test to figure out the best settings for poplar and then use the other link I provided to test making portraits. There are some extremely skilled members here that use basic lasers to make some amazing portraits.
I’m not sure the max DPI of my AtomStack but to be honest, I rarely go above 300 DPI as it takes too long to get even a single wooden coaster done.
Ortur’s have swappable lenses so you can cut and engrave finer. If you really want more ability and DPI you should look into a K40 CO2 laser. Very fast and precise but they are not for someone who cannot tinker with them.
