@LukaszL said in Most "extended" places on engravings are burned.:
Ok so I tried something yesterday and today and these are the results.
-Yesterday I installed the elekscam, made an RST ROM and used the install driver option
- I couldn't figure out the elekscam at all, it just burned the wood so I tried going back to t2laser
-Since then my engraver runs like garbage. At the same settings as before (3050 feed rate) I tried to engrave this picture (around 40mm width)
The t2 laser showed me that I'd take around 2 minutes - normal speed for such size and "in the past" it'd really take this time to engrave this), but now it takes 2 minutes to engrave a few lines
-I tightened a little the 2 red potentiometers if that matters
-I discovered that there was some tension on the axis on which the laser is, it didn't move smoothly, rather jumpy but I fixed that.
So I think that as Nottingham82 mentioned, the extended places may have been burned because the motor couldn't move for a small amount of time due to the tension, so I think that we fixed this problem but now I have created the second problem that it does such a "thing" in 2 minutes, when a day back it'd take 2 minutes to create the whole engraving, but as mentioned that happened after flashing it through elekscam.
I downloaded elekscam and made "rst rom" again, no results whatsoever. So now it's a matter of getting the eleksmana firmware back to work I guess?
I hope there would be a way to do this
Thanks for your ideas and commitment yet again, I hope that is going to be my last issue
To be exact, I created a text in t2laser, custom size 50x50, made a "ENGRAVING" text using ARIAL 6 REGULAR.
With settings feed rate 3050 and 0.05 scan resolution it took exactly 7 minutes and 50seconds to engrave this, the engraving looks bad and burned while a day ago with those settings it'd look nice and be made in around 2 minutes. Tested it on another computer that didn't have any contact with the laser at all, just installed a new t2laser and it did exactly the same thing, so I think it's pretty safe to assume it's a software/firmware issue.
Sorry for writing so chaotic but I'm just hopeless at the moment and don't want to spend another 200$ on a new machine, or at lest 25$ for a new eleks mana.
Thanks in advance
