To my knowledge there is no concept of color in gcode. It is primitive instructions to activate motion and tool operations. What your tools do to view it varies 100% by the application. Are you using T2 to etch?

That's because this is a manually modified file I created, it's like a standard grey scale and velocity mode job combined. I also manually changed the header which screws up the viewer.

Hi,

i tested your g-code file yesterday. It looks not very well on cheap ply.

Other Question: which software did you use to generate the g-code? Or is it a manual created code?

thx.

I used T2Laser to generate the G-code for power and then manually added the feed rates for each row.

Okay.
I understand.

You use a gray scale picture as source and add additional fade rates manually.

Yes, exactly.
