Good afternoon folks… Been a LONG time since ive been around (after my laser/winch videos haha).
Anyway. I have a project (small) i want to do.
That said, the files it provides wont work in anything but estlcam (not piclaser, or laseretch etc) becuse you need to isolate the lines as vectors to cut them.
Problem seems to be estlcam is not very good at laser stuff (or my settings are wrong) im using GRBL etc… Have the laser start and stop when the job starts, but no matter how many passes i do, the laser wont cut. 1/4" birch play… it never seems to get past the top veneer.
Ive cleaned the laser, adjusted the focus (ad nauseum) and everything else I can think of.
ive tried .2mm per cut, 10mm/s so like 35 passes for 1/4" and it barely makes a dent.
Any ideas? anyone cutting accurately with a jtech laser on estlcam? if so, id love some help.
