When engraving words the letters have a jagged edge they look fine on my screen

It’s hard to tell exactly, but I’d suspect that you need to do a scanning offset adjustment.

What kind of dpi/lpi are you attempting?


Try turning the scan angle to 90 degrees. (ok - so not that good of an idea… scratch that suggestion)

It’s not a recommended practice to have the work done by the Y axes, weighs more and is slower … it generally causes more issues that it’s worth… it also depends on the rotary… a wheel type I say no way, you can get away with it on a chuck if you’re willing to have longer jobs run… still not a good idea.

If your machine is correctly setup, there should be no discernible difference between the results.
