Re: Help with images

Went to order a J tech lens... Their shipping costs are out to lunch. I know cross border shipping is a little more expensive but $25 USD for a tiny envelope... Not happening. I just tried that and got $8.76 for shipping ... make sure you use the calculate shipping option, otherwise it adds like $5...

The Picture is saved at .006 pixels and Ive since changed the angle on the beam to match the 45º motion.

Re: Setting up picLaser and j Tech DAC PWM

I put a dab of hot glue on the lens threads to help lock them in and got it focused but I was at 4" Z height and it wasn't burning 100% correctly. So when I tried to refocus it, the lens was stuck and the adjustment knob came off. Anyway, I have it all fixed now at 3" and the pic below wit...

Re: Setting up picLaser and j Tech DAC PWM

Ummm my bad.. its set to inches. you said imperial and I was thinking metric.. oh well! I never hear it called that.

The resolution is .01 and the Max 3rd axis depth is -.0255

Re: Setting up picLaser and j Tech DAC PWM

I don't have any birch yet, but the hard backer board flooring seems to work well. Last night I found my steps were too high causing the images to be...

Re: Setting up picLaser and j Tech DAC PWM

FWIW Pins 1 & 14 are next to each other on the BOB. Ive messed with the settings and it appears to be working.
Now its time for testing and tweaking.

I really do like this 2.8W laser from J-Tech
