I use Eleksmaker Pro A3 with 5000mW Laser module, and try cutting MDF board but don't have good result.
Please give me some advices about
- How deep can I cut MDF board? If I can cut 6mm depth with 5000mW laser, it should be a hope for me.
- Could someone teach me whether should I focus laser point at upper surface or bottom surface?
- To have good result, I wonder which is better for cutting MDF "low power, slow cut speed" or "high power, fast cut speed"...
I succeed only 2 times with settings below
Travel Speed = 8000mm/min
Cut rate = 300mm/min
Power = 100%
Repeat = 10 times (takes about 2mitutes for cutting once)
with simple air assist to remove smoke.
Software = Laserweb4, grbl 1.1-e
But after tested it, I couldn't cut anymore even I do NOT change any settings in parameter, using same MDF board and using same cutting data.
I wonder what made it difficult to cut MDF .
