Robot laser - power - speed - point
« on: March 15, 2017, 03:18:16 AM »
Good morning,
yesterday I flash and install and register the sw.
I don't understand why when I change speed and power on the sliders nothing change on the job.
I also put the flag to override and then compile the gcode but nothing change..
Now I import a dxf and cut only to corner of a shape when the head decelerate..
Any suggestion please ?

Ps. I try also to use low power to pointer but with no success.. the laser is off

Thank you

L7 - gbrl 0.9 - 5.5W

Please, verify that power curve is linear.
(Config -> power curve)
with power 1-2 laser MUST light up.
Just a question, laser light up pressing "focus" button in L7 board.
To test speed, please change dramatically 200 - 2000 in order to be evident
the change.

If laser cut only on corner, increase power and/or reduce speed (i.e. increase energy);
also may be helpful to increase acceleration until the machine loose step, in order to avoid the
enegy increase at start/end of vectors.

Obviously, the dynamic power fuction of GRBL 1.x (and RobotLaser 1.2.x) is a GREAT help.
