I see 2 possibilities. 1 your focus is too wide. The cut should be thinner although that may be the slow speed burning out. Second is the soot is keeping you from cutting through. I can cut 3mm in 6 passes with air assist on. With air assist turned low it won't cut through.

flip and rotate work great.  I like the time remaining!!! that was a good add.  I like being able to do the dxf optimizer anytime and not having to reload.   

My freaking y axis wire came apart again.  Time to order a replacement.  I'm on a work trip to napa this next week so its a good time to order.

under the edit tab there is something called auto trace.  It will turn your image into a vector outline.

awww yes the dreaded white side.  White reflects some of the energy.  Soooo cut your speed in half.  That might help.  We can cut right through some acrylic colors and not at all on others.

For settings. Select greyscale.  Then set two speeds.  One left click speed and one right click.  Then run a test burn.  if you dont like it try a bigger range for your speed.  Start with like 1000 and 2000.  See what that does for you.

mine is a rectangle.  It focuses in the y plane.  So i need to cut a square.  When my x plane and y plane are the same diameter I am focused.

hmmm ok I ordered the adapter thor's little brother posted and some leads.  We will see how this goes.  Pictures to follow when i get it set up.  Thanks loki for the amazon links.  I had some amazon gift cards which is why i started looking at switches to begin with.

Be sure to set a high and low speed using a right click on the speed button

I have this happen to me as well if i hit the emergency stop. Then hit home.  It goes someplace else.  Usually off by quite alot 5 or 6 mm in one or each direction.  It seems like it just didnt realize where it stopped like its thinking its farther along than it was.

If I let it complete naturally it goes exactly to the place I started.  If i run it again it places the lines exactly on one another.  I didnt have this happen on some other firmwares.  I could stop hit home and it would go to where it started.  I finally gave up on .9 and went with whatever it is zax has now.  I also am not running home switches so home is where ever I tell it to be.

If you don't want to solder to the board, put a header between the Nano and board and bend the D9 pin at 90 degrees. Then you can solder to the header.

Ok so I have a header between my L7 and the nano.... so what you are saying is pull out my nano and bend the d9 pin so it does not run into the header but all the other pins do.  Then solder to the nano? or solder to the header connected to the board? 

FYI I hate wiring! I'm a mechanical guy not an electrical guy!
