General Discussion / MOVED: Differences in filaments and nozzles?
« on: January 10, 2017, 08:04:42 AM »
This topic has been moved to Kits.

Sorry about the move...I did that by mistake...the link above still works however.

255 is fine...you've tested with both and 255 works best for you.

Looks like the low power laser machine DIY community will be getting a new frame design...!!!

Are you going to offer a DIY kit? or just plans or ???

I await the results of your full size solid oak desk with all the pieces cut with a 2.5W laser diode.

You'll need BCL with full Z axis support for that project...right?

It also depends what firmware you are using...

Your 255 max setting looks better (more normal) to me than the 1000 setting. I'd stay with 255.

I'm attaching one of my test results on 3mm Plywood just so you can see what I'm getting.

You can clearly see the differences in the line burns at different laser power values. I'm set to 1000 btw.

You might not get a laser beam on at 5% or 10%...I don't...

I don't know about doing this test on other materials but on wood you can clearly and easily see the line burn differences....there is no question when burning wood.

>Is there any way to see if the power is adjusting?

Absolutely...if your laser diode is working, burn a line at 100% power and then burn a line at 20% power...there should be a very noticeable difference in how the two lines look.

If the lines look alike, then your laser isn't working as it should -- or -- in BCL Setup you may not have the correct max laser power value set...see attachment...if you have 255 set, try changing it to 1000 and then do this test again and see if that doesn't make a difference.

If you already have 1000 set and the two lines look about the same, then your laser diode isn't working correctly.

Bert,

I will have a new build for you to test soon.

Thanks...

I contacted the makers of LaserBot and they have agreed to send me a controller board so I can get BCL to work with it. This will take some time but I will update this thread when I receive it.

Sorry for the delay.

UPDATE: The LaserBot sales dept contacted me today asking for my mailing address so I guess they will ship out the controller board to me within the next 24 hours.

Ahhh yes...I'm so used to being in the middle of the material when I'm testing things...if you're doing Shape testing, you need to be in the left/central area of your material...not down in the lower left corner of 0,0.

I did change the size of the inches shapes recently...attached is a zip file with all of the shapes if you're interested in updating all your inch shapes...although it really doesn't matter for what their purpose is.
