T2 Engraving / Re: Really slow burning

There's not a lot of blank space in his design but with rapid skip blank enabled T2Laser would do as you suggest.

What was the output size?

I typically use 0.15~0.18 for the resolution since the spot size is in that range and I often defocus slightly and use 0.2 for speed (depends on the material).

Assuming the material is flat I would say you have a wobble in your carriage (wheels).

We have a lot of answers, and a few may even be correct  ;D

Something is wrong, what resolution are you using?

The max feed rate is set to 5000 in my default firmware parameters, you can increase it by sending (in debug mode):
$110=8000
$111=8000

I wouldn't go above 8000, and for engraving I don't usually need over 3000.

You must have your machine "dialed in", the results speak for themselves. I'm not sure we can allow you to upgrade to the Trinamic 2130s, you're already making us look bad with the standard drivers  ??? .

It sounds like backlash (mechanical play), a picture would confirm.

What a fantastic process, and great story. Thank you for sharing.

That's really cool, ingenious!

Wow, I wouldn't be using a CO2 laser on an open frame machine, even a reflection at that wavelength is a significant risk.

I would say the issue is fixed, your results are looking good. You should enable bi-directional mode as it's significantly faster.

You can check PayPal policy but in the USA you have 6 months to file a dispute, since you have an email where they accept the laser wasn't shipped I would tell them they need to ship a replacement within 2 weeks and provide the tracking number as proof or you will file a dispute. That should tell them you are serious, or you want refund, not points.

File a PayPal dispute immediately, that is the only way you will get it resolved.

T2 Engraving / Re: Pause a job
« on: April 07, 2018, 06:20:03 PM »
If registration doesn't need to be precise (within a few mm) it's possible, but you wouldn't pause and resume the job, rather have 2 jobs. Make sure the piece has a straight edge so you can index it and then start the 2nd job.

You can also use the samples in the Help menu.

I don't think this is backlash, it's most likely an issue with the laser driver or controller not switching fast enough. I believe the gap is at the start rather than the end.

Make sure you don't have dynamic mode enabled (probably not), and then try reduced acceleration mode. If the gap reduces that tells you it's an electrical issue with the laser or controller.

You should also check that laser max is set to 255 (using my firmware).
