[Insert “over 9000” joke here.]
But in all seriousness - would Lightburn having an ‘apparent power’ value be worth having on a wider scale?
For example, at 100mm/s & 100% Power, on a 40w machine, 10mA max value on the analog meter would be 40Jmm^2 or something like that. Whereas 50mm/s & 100% power, would be 80Jmm^2.
Would this be useful to see in the settings window? Would it be useful to lock the ‘apparent power’ value while changing a speed value so that the two scaled in unison while keeping the apparent power? My thoughts are that once you’ve figured out that one machine, with a beam width of [X], needs [Y] joules of power in order to get through the material - it would be applicable across machines.
Of course, the nuances might be enough that this wouldn’t be useful at all - but I wanted some feedback before suggesting it on the suggestion portal. I was thinking about how every machine has their own personalized settings and how that might be rectified into a single value that might be useful across machines.
Don’t be afraid to tell me that this is dumb.
