T2 Engraving / Re: Laser Speed
« on: August 04, 2017, 12:37:34 PM »
Dear Zax,

thanks for your fast post.
Sorry for this "beginner-question", but is it correct, that I have to flash the firmware with the GRLB by using arduinio IDE, or is there a other way?

Thanks and best regards

T2 Engraving / Laser Speed
« on: July 30, 2017, 12:34:36 AM »
Dears,

yesterday I made my first try (one year after  I bought it ;-)

It seems that the speed settings have not a big influence in the speed the laser does - it is very slow.
Is there somewhere a setting which limits the speed to a other value than in T2 is indicated?

Thanks a lot

@Agastar:
Yes you are right - this is a possibility. But e.g. for the rabbits I have the problem that I'm milling more than one.. And the mill is much bigger than the laser.. So I will do it in Zax's way and will laser the outline (like a jig) an put it on there.. It will be the easiest way..

aaaah I found the difference.
I made a template in draftsight with layers in different colours.
When I open your file you are working on one layer and use different colours..

Thanks for the example!

Hello Zax,

yes, I also thought about this workaround...
It's not the best solution, I have to fix the jig or material, write two programs one with and one without outline and so on..

Thanks

Dear Zax,

I tried this with the colours with DraftSight. When I open it with T2 the colours will not be shown. Is this correct? I opend with incscape and the colours where  there - so no problem with the file.

Thanks and best regards

Hello again,

the zero point in CAD (DraftSight in my case) doesn't solve the problem.

The problem is, that I need a zero-point directly on the geometry.

I mill out the rabbit on CNC mill (due to thickness of material it is much faster). Than I put it on the laser and need a zero point which I can find easy - in this kind the sharp edge (red dot). If I would use global zero it wouldn't work because half of the rabbit would be out of the working frame, right?!

Thanks and best regards

Michael

T2 Engraving / Zero-point
« on: October 21, 2016, 09:12:05 AM »
Dears,

I've a question accoring zero of sketch.

Is there a possibility to put the zero point in the middle of the sketch area?
Background:
If I mill the outline of something, lets say a rabbit and I want to engrave the eyes, nose and so on with the laser I need a defined point on the rabbit.
When the zero point is in the corner, I would also need the point of the rabbit in the lower left corner - but due to the shape of the rabbit, there couldn't be any point of it.
Hope someone could understand what I mean?!

Thanks for your help

Dears,

I've the same "problem", but playing around with "speed" and "power" seems to solve it.
I tried to make thin lines and it worked - speed 5000, power 220 with a 2,5W laser

Zax,

first, thanks a lot for your efforts!

In most cases there is no need for a 100% correct alignment of a picture in the dxf.
I mean, for me it would be enough to align it freehand without dimension just by eye.

Thanks again

Hello Zax,

did you have a chance to review already?

And i think we have better beer than the germans :-).

That will be you marked down in Angela's  black  book...........:))

You will have better beer than the germans, perhaps... but not a better beer than the bavarians ;-)

ok.. a little bit off topic ;-)

greets from bavaria (it's neer germany ;-))

Dear Zax,

thanks again for your answer!

Ok, you are right, zero in draftsight should be possible (normally not important for 2d CAD).

Combine a dxf and a picture would be useful because you could engrave a picture and cut it out according dxf.
Now you have to engrave the picture and make a second run to cut it out.

Sorry again for my questions - as I told I'm new in lasers
