Is that treated canvas like a painting canvas?
Mind sharing your settings?

Well, my traditional mustard is not working.
Tried two different objects
T2Laser, 50 speed, full power, 2.5w

***EDIT***
Did one with 3 passes, non stop. I got VERY minimal markings

Gonna try with dried mustard, different mustard and maybe some other pieces.
Will report back when able

That is what attracted me. I like the idea of only one stepper motor controlling the Z axis.

And the price is pretty decent

Engraving / Re: Wood Types and Suggested Settings
« on: August 27, 2018, 04:34:17 PM »
Good afternoon.

I dropped by the local wood supply store and picked up some sample stock of the following types.
If someone has practical experience engraving these and would help me out with some suggested
T2 Software settings so I don't waste time and wood, I'd really appreciate it.  I have a 200mw laser.
Thanks.

Wood types:
Poplar
Maple
Knotty Alder (but it looks clear)
Cherry
Spanish Cedar
Peruvian Walnut

Have a look here

I am going to make one of these just to play around with a coreXY and start understanding it a bit more

To be more specific, here are some things that I would like to do to my laser. Are they possible? if so, how? Where would I go to purchase the parts etc.

1. Get some better safety glasses. Recommendations? (the ones that come with the laser won't fit over my regular glasses)
2. Add drag chains. (my laser sits on a table that is almost the same exact size so sometimes the cables going to the stepper motors get hung on the corners)
3. Home switches.
4. Upgrade the stepper motor drivers.
5. Add a resistor to stop the laser from turning on by itself.

I do not think any of this is beyond my abilities. I have built guitar pedals in the past and I am have worked in the IT field for 12 years. Not bragging just saying I am not a dummy. But I am also a visual learner so I would like to find written and visual instructions please.

Thanks,
John

1. Survival laser USA. Go to their site and get the OD6 orange glasses that go over glasses for $50. I bought them and love them
2. I am just using a cable keeper. Round hard plastic. It works well
3. Check out Thingiverse. Search for user Nottingham82 and he has an awesome collection
4. Hardware store
5. Find one pin compatible
6. Try a 4.7k resistor between the S and GND pin on the laser
