newbie question about images

  • Hi all,
    I’m new to laser engraving and software stuff is not that familiar to me!

    Can anyone tell me why if i load an image into inkscape, resize, export as a PNG and open in t2 I get a good quality engraving with plenty of power but if I open the same image directly in T2 and trace/fill I don’t get the same depth of engraving/power?

    many thanks

    @james_h So if you load an image (raster) it uses the raster feed rate, but if you trace it (vector) it uses the vector feed rate - so only guessing but do you have the vector feed rate higher? Power would be the same (laser max) so feed rate is really the only difference.

  • Thanks,

    No, vector was much lower. I don’t seem to be having any issues now... not sure what was going on!
