Mainly you want to set your speed. It is mm/minute

is you are just trying to engrave, start at 800-1200 to see how much it engraves. you can adjust your speed to match your laser

I would set time and step both to 10 and change your carve to scan by z

Also click the arrow pointing to the right and make sure ppm is set to 320 for both x and y

Did that work? If so, use that.
