Grayscale Image on T2 Software

  • Also I saw on advanced settings,i think that M0 comand apear on the line but I don't remember if I saw it before.It is not selected but as I said I think it was not before there

    @firewirehn If the full image is shown on the "view" (button top right of the G-code window) that is the G-code simulation and what is sent to your machine. There should be no need for cool down on engraving, I've run many jobs over 12 hours and some over 18 hours and never had issues with over heating - cutting is different and T2Laser supports cool down for that when the laser is running 100% for long times.

    I'm not sure what you mean M0, if you use my default firmware parameters and T2Laser settings you will get fantastic results. You should be careful changing settings and parameters until you understand their functions.

  • I will make photo and shows this M0... I made one engraving..90x50mm great i set one for engraving 150x100mm and I will see result.I did not change any parameter excep I did calibration on advance settings because difference was 0.2mm..Maybe is problem board like you said earlyer on some post.This is why I update photo of this EleksMana SE board just I want your opinion about this board.

  • And also my laser is not TTL...And one more thing,from my life experience as Mechanical Engineer,working with so many machineries and automatic control on ships there is also isue due to hot area especially now during summer time.

  • These are my results.Just now finished.1_1564874933809_20190804_012259.jpg 0_1564874933776_20190804_012236.jpg
    Feed Rate:1100,Speed:0-255 and Resolution 0.18
    Maybe to increase feed rate it wluld be better.

    @firewirehn Your results look good for non-TTL laser on a less than ideal material. I would not increase feed rate as that makes it lighter, if anything you could reduce it 200 and get darker blacks. Typically dithered or velocity mode will produce better results with lasers that don't support grey scale, but you appear to be getting shading so it's not necessary.

  • You mean to decrease Feed Rate on 900...I tried Velocity but sometimes gives me too dark image.This is 10mm ordinary plywood...Which material do you use?

  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    @firewirehn If you lower the feed rate the overall image will get darker. I use Birch laser ply, it is more expensive but the surface is very uniform and engraves easily. The reason it is called "laser ply" is the resins are water soluble so can be laser cut without flaring, if you use air assist the cuts are excellent.

    The results you are getting considering the type of laser and material are very good.

  • This ply is made especially for engraving isn't it.I will try to find it somewhere in stores or on net because it is ordinary plywood from construction store.Thanks Zax

    @firewirehn I have found Birch or Alder laser ply to be the best for these diode lasers, perhaps you can obtain different wood species not available in my local store (varies by country and location).
