nice, I have difficulties getting nice cutting boards, they are either bamboo or expensive exotic woods...
Feel free not to say, but out of curiosity, how much do you add to the cost of the boards to cover the work done? I find it very difficult not to under price some of the things I make..

to help with focusing you can take a small piece of wood mike the size of a school ruler and prop up one end so the wood makes a type of ramp. Then you just burn a line and you will see where the lasered line is thinnest...
I also use a 3D printed fan holder that has a bigger knob for adjusting the focus, I do this when the laser is on but I run it at 25% power or lower..

very nice an neat. Looks like you have your laser dialled in correctly.
Now expect to spend any remaining monay on slate, different woods and all sorts of other materials!
Lots of users here use inkscape to make vector designs.. Just saying as I find gimp a bit much. just my 2c!

Yes i did that but the correct focus is while it starts burning?You have to focus in low pulse or high pulse laser mode?

You probably don't want to hear this, but that's a very bad idea.

You ALWAYS need to be physically next to your laser when its being used. Things go wrong and a fire is always possible.

Projects / Re: Pixel art, T2Laser on grains of rice...

Thank you Zax. 🙏

I thought the jasmine "T2Laser" grain might be a useful marketing photo for the power of T2Laser. And phew ... some unusual edge-case testing that proves T2 works quite happily with some ultra tiny engravings (although the size of the laser "spot" in the G-Code Viewer window is a tad big :D ...)

This is a prototype - I thought I'd try some proper portraits and I'm possibly doing a collaboration with a botanical artist friend of mine. Botanical line art on a grain of rice! And I'm thinking maybe another more complicated silly pixel art thing. Lots of possibilities...

Also, look at Zax's comments on this thread http://benboxlaser.us/index.php/topic,2383.msg28147.html#msg28147 if you can't locate a dedicated TTL pinout on your controller board. I remember soldering directly to that pin on my older style L7 Eleksmaker board.
