General Discussion / Re: Rails ?
« on: January 18, 2017, 09:07:52 PM »
i was just going to ask about getting rails!, when i look around i see that they seem to have a 'series' attached to the size, the lowest series i see is '10' but that is 1"x1",
my rails are about .75"x.75" - does anyone know the correct series and sizes of the rails and belts for the Banggood a5?
also i have forgotten since assembly, are the ends of the rails where the bolt goes in threaded? or do they just self-thread when you put the bolt in? I see on one site they offer to tap the ends.

I found a laser cut clock template at a craft store, (I wish I could cut like that, lol) and I was able to make the image probably 10% bigger and this is what it looks like, I still have to get a Clock movement for it.

So these ttl lasers are actually linear in power, - 100 is actually half the power of 200?
How do they retrofit to the existing wireing?

1. some way to turn off the popup box/s "Generate g-code" and "save g-code" - so that when you hit 'laser control' it generates gcode and opens laser control.

2. real time display when you change 'B&W Threshold', right now you have to go to settings/b&w threshold/change number, hit ok to see the result, and then do it all over again to make another change.
if it would change while you have the box open when you change it that would be much better.

No I have a regular laser as far as I know, I changed my settings  to use a 0 min because it doesn't make any difference to have it "sort of on" it's probably easier on the laser to just turn on and completely off anyway

C-1 is contrast -1 and G.99 is the gamma on the image, no air assist, I have a hood that pulls smoke out of the window buts it been too cold to open it.

decided to try a big project, almost the maximum workspace my laser has,
this is the 2nd try, with slight tweaks from the first and it looks pretty darn good!

Projects / Got very intricate
« on: December 24, 2016, 07:54:37 PM »
I was able to get a very clear and intricate pattern on a 1.5 inch disc I'm very happy with the results and bonus I got it perfectly centered

Projects / Made some little magnets

Here's a couple little magnet pieces a made 
There 1.5" circles so getting use of the maximum space and getting it centered was a little trial and error.

i think that is it, i set the min to 0 and the gcode viewer is no longer all yellow, in fact there is no yellow. I didn't do a burn because it would take too long.
i'll have to try leaving it at 0 and seeing if it makes any difference.

I keep my min at 50-90 ( I believe it works better because the laser doesn't have to go from off to high power- it stays "warmed up" while running. That probably makes no difference lol
I will try that in a few minutes to see if it changes.

Now why would your power setting have anything to do with blank lines through?

i installed the latest version, but it still shows the entire image in yellow (not skipping them middle)
'skip blank lines' is checked, 'photo mode' is not checked
i wonder why its different for me

No I don't believe I did,
I'll double check later
