In my 1st few attempts to cut different color papers on my new Eleksmaker A3 Pro, 2.5W laser, I noticed that white paper isn’t easy to cut like colored paper (std copy paper weight).
If I try to go slower or raise power, the paper catches fire.
For example speed/power settings of 8mm per sec/20%PWR cuts a pattern through on a darker paper color like light red, but just skips along without marking white paper except when the laser slows down on corners of a rectangle for example.
Is this because white paper reflects the laser and does not absorb the heat energy as well as colored paper, brownish card stock, and wood?
I’m running the trial version of Lightburn on a Win10 laptop.
