Re: What wattage diode is best for photo engraving if speed is not an issue

Hi Jeff, I think I pretty much got it all working now....no lines at all and the contrast looks better than before and image looks more sharp. I did these images with the following speeds: 1550 mm/m (bottom) - 1650 mm/m (middle) and 1700 mm/m (top) .... when I tried 1750 mm/min I noticed some lines....

Re: What wattage diode is best for photo engraving if speed is not an issue

Hi Jeff, Thank You for yout feedback. I agree....finding that sweet spot for the laser pic can be a bit challenging compared to just on/off but I think I'm getting even closer here :). I did adjust the focus more careful and I was able to get better results. On the images below I set the feed rate t...

Re: What wattage diode is best for photo engraving if speed is not an issue

Re: What wattage diode is best for photo engraving if speed is not an issue

An updated on my issues: After doing more test my 6040 CNC controller box started to act up and I could no longer move the axes... I could hear a relay inside connecting and disconnecting on it's own.. maybe a ground loop somewhere or a failing component. All in all I ended up ordering the Gecko 540...

Re: What wattage diode is best for photo engraving if speed is not an issue

Hi Jeff, I got to try the xml you updated for me and it does move much better and smooth at that speed...I didn't notice any more incremental raster moves.....tho it still burns the image to much. I'm including links to 2 images and vid from when I tested it. Image 1 which was done at 1800 mm/min : ...
