I think I’m missing something in my learning path with the laser. I thought I’d try some engraving (simple plague with some swirly things and text). I tried Lightburn - that’s the real scribbly stuff second up from the bottom:
Then I tried Image2Code - the “not MPCNC friendly version”. That’s the bottom most one in the pic above.
And then I tried the MPCNC friendly version. That’s the top attempts here:[attachment file=87056]
I know there are setting you all will need to know in prefer to help me but not sure which ones you’ll need. Just let me know and I’ll back track my brain. I can also post the gcode if you think that’ll help you see what I’ve got not right here. I appreciate the help.
To me it seems like the laser wasn’t firing at all the spots where I thought it should be firing. Is it possible it just flashed so fast I didn’t see it? The Lightburn stuff seemed to only do the outlines but I had it set to “scan”. Perhaps loose belts on the machine also making it just imprecise enough to mess things up?
