@DavidF Thanks for the tips with lime and bass wood. Never thought about it but I'll definitely search some - as you said, bamboo isn't the best for testing. I also noticed a lot of different results.

RE: Grayscale advice needed
Okay, I try another with 0.18...
Yeah, I know and I think these Ikea Bamboo tablets are also ned the best one for engraving - even when I sand them down, they have a very uneven surface. But as they're cheap, it's wonderful for testing.
Grayscale advice needed
I've got a Eleksmaker 2.5W with an Mana SE 3.1 board. So far so good, it runs without any problem.
Now, after spending some hours with the machine, I try to dialin some good settings for grayscale images. For this I took a random picture of my cat and did some burns on a cheap Ikea bamboo tablet.
I did three passes: 1200/255, 1600/255 and 2100mm/min with 200 power. But it looks like the image is same dark in all three passes - except the quality is with 1200mm/min the best, sure, slower = better.
Any tips and tricks for getting this better dialed in?
