Stupid question alert !!!

In the control screen, next to the power adjust, is PW.  What is that ?

Getting good cuts setting speed on import screen, adjusting power on controllet screen, but dont know what to do with PW...

Oh, and where is the multiple passes selection?

I assure you all your help is appreciated, and I will return the favor to other newbies in the future once my head is fully dislodged. ..

I am out of town :( so I can't check to see what you are talking about.

The multipass is in one of the drop downs before you generate gcode. It says multipass vector. Right below it is cool down. That allows a delay between each cut. Sorry I'm not more helpful. I'll be home tomorrow

Found out the PW setting is for the pulse timing only.  Took 2 hours of reading to find it really doesn't apply to anything I need at the moment...  ;D

Also found 1.1e was the recommended flash and everything in the "alternate list" was just that, an alternate.  Would have loved to have "Recommended" and "If all else fails" noted next to them.

3am, screwing off at work (thank god I own the company), and reading about "Laser Beams".  Im hooked...

You are not "really" hooked till you start designing your own machine to account for all the limitations you encountered.
