I'm a total noob when it comes to my laser machine. I'm having a lot of fun tweaking everything and I think I'm on the right track as things are getting better but I thought I'd ask.
I've got a 3.5 laser module and using PicLaser lite. My settings are feed rate of 3000, resolution of 0.1524, at 255 and 0 for the power engraving at -45 degrees.
My first attempt gave me a whole lot of light stripes in my etch so I tried horizontally, which reduced the stripes quite substantial but as you can see they're still there.
I then increased my resolution slightly to 0.1651 and my speed down to 2300, which reduced the stripes but introduced some thin white lines. So I reduced the speed a little more and things started to look better still.
Am I on the right track with increasing the resolution and reducing the speed or am I missing something else important?
Appreciate your help.
