Laser engraving with svg file VS raster (jpg). Raster is better(??)
Hi Guys, would anyone be able to enlighten me on this one?
I am laser engraving on bamboo. I get pretty good results with a Jpeg image, using "Point" engraving method. But it's way to long as I need to engrave a whole series of items and will need to do that on a regular basis.
I though I could get good and quicker results using an svg file instead. But the result is not as sharp, and actually not really good at all.
Could you point me to what I possibly do wrong? isn't svg supposed to be the first choice when it comes to sharpness?
A3 Pro 2500W bought last month. It has the new Blue Eleksmaker laser.
Engraving with Jpeg:
I use EleksCAM software. I import directly the image with the PiCarve option.
I choose the "Point" method.
Engraving with svg:
I import the svg file into inkscape and generate the Gcode (of the filled image) with the Elksmaker plugin. I check the code in Candle and it does look crisp. I Load the Gcode into EleksCAM software using the Load Gcode option.
