Re: Setting up picLaser and j Tech DAC PWM

Sorry, will need to do it manually one at a time. Basic settings should all be the same, or very close.

Re: Picsender 3.0 Tool tips

Re: ERROR 1

Email sent earlier. Please advise if you do not get it.

Re: New machine problems

Re: Beam shape and engraving direction

Tim, I apologize for missing your post.
Orient the beam to a 45 degree angle to the X axis, and engrave at a 45 degree angle for best results.
I prefer to use the 45 degree left angle.
