T2laser not engraving in greyscale mode
Been doing a few simple tests with the 5.5kw elekslaser and it works great. I bought the t2laser software and it does a great job compared to the standard software.
I descided to try a greyscale image and for some reason the power sets to lower and doesnt burn the wood att all. My settings are:
feed rate 1000
rapid feed 2000
laser low 0
laser max 255
pulse (ms) 320
Any ideas what im doing wrong?
First, what kind of laser do you have? 2 wire or 3 wire?
Second, set your laser min (low) to something like 180. The power level is not linear and 0 is off.
There are others who can explain it better than I. This thread should really help
I have a 2 wire laser. Thanks for the link. Will check it out and feedback if it works
You may not want to set your low laser then. You will want to use your feed rate and rapid feed rate in conjunction with velocity mode.
I would use Velocity mode as recommended, with the older non-TTL 2 wire laser it produces excellent results.
