Here is what I did to solve it. I opened up the eleksmaker plugin in notepad++, and changed the orientation_scale for millimeters to 1 (from 3.5433...). Didn't fix the inches option, but I stick with mm anyway.
I now get the correct scale automatically. No idea why its like this on my setup, but it works now. Newest inkscape, latest linked eleksmaker plugin.
It depends, what you want to burn. For engraving wood with 2.5W laser, speed 1000 and power 300-400 should be suitable. But anyway it's vice to experiment as different materials needs different approach. You can increase a speed if you increase a power. In EleksMaker IncScape tool power can be adjusted between 0-1000.
I use EleksCam mostly. If it can't understand some SVG-files, then I make G-code in IncScape and use it via EleksCAM also. In earlier times I controlled generated G-codes in Candle, but not any more as there is no need for that as there are no problems if you have already a little bit practice.
nope. Best technique I've found is cutting squares. I know my 3 mm wood should take no more than 6 passes so I just keep adjusting a 8 mm square until I get it to cut in 4-6 passes then I know I'm set at that height. After doing even a little bit of work youll end up with tons of scrap to to work with. Some people do test lines. I like squares.
