Ooooh hover text.

 I like the idea of improved frame mode. I didn't think of that when I was thinking of color invert.

Bring on the Welsh

here is some settings to start. http://benboxlaser.us/index.php/topic,1461.msg17702.html#msg17702

Its for pwm not ttl but it might not be all that different or you can use his scientific method to come up with your own settings.

I think its a good thing.  Maybe.  I believe the new mana boards come stock with pwm and ttl so that should be good.  But then again there could be hidden problems.  Good luck.  Keep us posted.

wow ok your tolerance on your x axis wheels is way off.  I just tried doing that with mine and there was no slop.  So we know the problem.  Your wheels are too far apart from one another. The question is how to fix it.  You could drill new holes but you would have off set them since the old holes are probably too close to where you need to drill.  You could find slightly bigger wheels.  The easiest might be to put something in the groove at the top.  Do you have that plastic piece they send you to run the wires along the sides? that might work.

dunno about that.  I'm sure autocad can do it, but I'm cheap so I only have inkscape.  Although the new version of Inkscape has a dxf sizing bug.

So you just use painters tape. aka masking tape.  It works great for wood surfaces.  It keeps the hot smoke that comes from burning the wood from charing the edges of your engraving.  You want to try to avoid overlapping the tape because it can leave lines at the areas of overlap.  You can get the wide stuff from amazon.  I also use it to mask off an area i want to paint.  So if I  have a wood sign, I paint it, tape it, engrave it, paint the engraved area, then remove the tape.  The tape is safe to laser because it is just paper and adhesive.  I like the brown tape best... I dont know why but Ralph and I like it best.

sweet.  Yeah the stuff I used didnt leave any scratches or lighten it but it did make it much flatter and smoother.   I'll have to look in my cabinet and compare the sand paper to whats in there to see if I can figure out its grit.

only thing with slate is that its dark so make sure its in a well lit area.  In a dark hallway its not very noticeable.

that sounds good for someone like me come on guys lift your game  ;D i still got to order the second license off you yet Zax but wating till my unit arrives thought i would have had it by now

The way I am set up I have a trial version in the house so I can make sure my designs load properly but my licensed version is in the garage attached to the laser.  I love T2 but I'm cheap at heart.
