Engraving / Re: Engraving into colored acrylics

on the attached thread there are a list of colored acrylics we know do and dont work.  On the last page I have some settings that worked for me with a green acrylic to both cut and engrave.

yes.  This is very common. a few people have gotten new lens from ebay and gotten a more pinpoint result but it resulted in a loss of focusable distance.

Welllllll benbox doesn't work on 1.1. Flash to .9 or .8 (not sure which  one) for benbox if you want that to work. Also i think for a 2 wire laser that jumper should be on 12v.

Are you saying it homes the machine in the down z position during the initial homing sequence?

sometimes I tape before I burn.  Then I can use a black primer paint to get that perfect black char look.  If you go slow enough and get the cut deep enough you can paint and if you get any bleed under the tape a quick touch with the orbital sander will.  Both the attached projects used this method.  Although the door signs I painted, then taped, then burned, then brushed, then used the black primer.

if you have the full version make sure your power features settings on your pc are set to never go to sleep or go into low power standby.

There really isnt a min per se. Assuming your laser focuses to .1mm (if well focused) then if you go smaller than that you are just hitting the same spot twice and doubling the gcode.  At some point you run into memory issues and you definitely run into over burning issues due to the overlapping.
