@foxylad I am always willing to try something new. I have T2 running on my laptop out in the garage but do my designing/editing on another computer. Sometimes I make many things that vary just a little bit. This could come in handy for stuf like that.
I probably will not do any grayscale or pictures with it being that I have T2 and it is dead simple to generate the gcode through it, but for some basic black and white this could be useful
First. Thank you all for the kind words and support of T2Laser. As most of you know I wrote it for myself as I could never get Benbox to work, but have continued to develop it based on user input and requests.
I use T2Laser on my EleksLaser, EleksDraw, a K2CNC and a K40 CO2 laser. On the K40 I swapped the proprietary board out for an EleksMaker L6 (you could use a Mana SE or CNC). There are easier options like the Cohesion 3D board which is also Grbl compatible.
The advantage of using T2Laser is it supports Velocity Mode which works much better than TTL/PWM with the CO2 lasers, or at least it does on mine.
@kempo Most colors of felt will cut OK, you should use laser max 255 and feed rate of 80 and do 2 or 3 passes to ensure all fibers are cut. There may be a few still not cut, if so you could go down to 60 for feed rate.
The manual is in the Help menu, or press Shift-F1.
You can save the settings as a Profile so in future it is simple to load them.
@Zax Awesome, thank you very much - I did order it and will have a chance to play with it around the 7th. Again, Thank you for all that you do. A lot of great info i have been getting and learning from all of your post, answers and support in the forum.
@jorgemarmo If you are using a DXF you must reload the file after changing settings, as denoted by the * on all menus that do not take effect until reloading. It is written in the manual "§ DXF Options (note: options marked with * only have an effect at load)"
The hatch is limited by resolution, if your shapes are small it's possible the hatch will overlap slightly but the laser width is 0.1 to 0.15 so the result will not be visible.
