Engraving problem only when just on one axis
« on: August 19, 2020, 12:17:10 PM »
Hey guys!  Question...

I noticed when engraving that when a line is just engraved on the x o y axis alone, it doesn't get properly burnt on wood.

When it is on fold line and engraving "diagonally" it works great, great definition on the engraving, but when the shape calls for a straight line whether on the x o y axis, it does not get clearly burnt.

But anyways, it is still weird because some horizontal o vertical lines are good...

Is the problem single pixel width lines perpendicular to the motion of travel?

Looks like a software bug or could be due to the firmware.

Firmware I can restore via elekskam directly isn't it??

I would start with some known simple test patterns, square, circle, etc.

Elekscam only works with a modified version of Grbl 0.9 which has some known issues related to laser mode. It's difficult to determine what is causing the issue so I agree testing some basic vector shapes would be recommended.
