RE: Help with new A3 setup and T2 questions
I have a much simpler Inkscape plugin designed purely for these engravers:
I'd love it if you could give it a try, and let me know how it goes.
Here my suggestions:
Someone who know python and have laser would be using J Tech Photonics laser plugin - a professional company dedicated to lasers. So you not really attract that group.
You need explanation why your plugin should be used instead of jtech plugin.
You attract the John Snow of laser community - they know nothing. You blog not show how to install, you not link or create videos to show what type of files not work, you should link to 'how to videos' for issues you know will be encounter - object to path type video, what is Alpha channel and how do I sets different values? All these things lacking, amateur user get frustrated and not like plugin because there known issues but no direction on how to resolve.
- You should make hyperlink to install instruction.
- Make video of install
- Be specific that only work or work best with svg file - link to simple videos of how to make svg or create paths.
- Make video tutorial of how to use the plugin - what is Alpha and how to set value.
RE: Problem importing SVG from Inkscape
I have a new Inkscape plugin that will generate the gcode directly from Inkscape. See https://bitbucket.org/vig/lasergcode
If you try it, please let me know how it goes.
Happy for you skill. Professional company already make free laser plugin for inkscape.
RE: Laser on full power when USB connected to controller and PC
@ThothLoki great... will try it
Do same for eleks program.
Do not power laser. Turn on eleks program. Select the Port. Click X or Y above Set Home. You then see that connection is made. Power the board.
