T2laser not engraving in greyscale mode



  • Hi
    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
    vector 500
    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.
