Burn Speed
« on: January 13, 2018, 01:20:51 PM »
Hello
Is it possible to set T2 in such a way that lasers are also used for the return journey? So forward and backward 2 lines burn. Or can you adjust that the return journey is faster than the feed rate?

Thank you in advance

BR
Jürgen

yes on both accounts.   The first is called bidirectional scanning. Its under settings-->image options

The second is set in the feed rate options.  Give the rapid feed rate a speed of 3000mm/min and your engraving feedrate something lower and appropriate for your materiel.  Then in the laser control screen click on Settings--> Advanced --->jog rapid feed

Bi-Directional is the default, the only reason to disable it is as a band-aid for backlash (mechanical) problems.
