Re: LaserCAD 7.78 Tips and Work arounds

You can draw these simple shapes but it is tedious so I recommend that you draw one of each and save them or export them for use again and again... Also, you need LaserCAD 7.78 because it has the node edit tools. NOTE If your nodes are not on top of each other, they may not unite with .1mm tolerance...

Re: Out of Bounds / Scaling Issue AWC608

If you draw a box that is 50x50mm and you get anything different, the um calibrration must be out or you have the wiring mixed up or there is a setting that is way off somewhere Double check your wiring then run the calibration on a 100x100 box, if the box is not 100x100 check settings and calibrate...

Re: "Overshoot" spots during engrave

Focus is important, When I see the grainy image it tells me the focus is bad, looks like someone sprinkled a tiny bit of sugar on the letters, See my example and you can see that image 3 is grainy, now I used a slower speed and less power so it is not as bad but see the similarity is evident, plus s...

Re: best rubber for laser cutting

There are rubber compounds that are used for sta...
