T2 Engraving / Re: Hatching - how do you guys do this?

You could use the eggbot hatch plugin for inkscape. I believe it will let you do separate hatches. I'm away so can't check.

My 2500 burns even hardwoods and cuts plywood. Some people report problems cutting plywood with 2500 though. A 7watt doesn't have a focus adjustment so you need a scissor lift to adjust the item up and down from the laser but it can mark stainless steel. Just some thoughts.

258mb seems high as does 1062 minutes time estimation. How big are you trying to engrave this picture?

What resolution are you printing at and can you share the image you are trying to print. I have gotten this error before. It happens when I open a huge image or high dpi image or when I am trying to print at a resolution lower than .1. The best solution when you get this error is a PC restart.

Most of your letters are deformed in some way. Ie letters not connected or jittery lines. That would indicate belt issues causing lost steps or improper stepper driver voltage as zax says. Basically your laser thinks it's making a circle but it's either not turning the motor all the way (voltage issue) or the belt is too loose and not moving when the motor moves or it's too tight preventing the motor from turning.  Does that help?

Yeah there are default sketch sizes but the last option gives you a manual size so you can adjust to your machine. I have an a5 and the default a5 isn't quite the right dimensions so I always use custom size sketches

I use satin. I had a bad experience with matte. It goes on looking like milk and then it didn't clear up everywhere and had a bunch of bubbles. It could have just been a bad application. I may try again one day

Looks great. When you get brave you can use trace to go over an image you have already done to get rid of those steps on your edges or do a line by line with the trace all in one go. But that is an awesome result for your first couple goes. You definitely put it together right and got everything installed properly.
