Don't move your Z axis as it will have your laser go out of focus. Set your feedrate faster or lower your max laser value for the cedar.

I now had test too engrave some pictures With different settings,
But it looks like its just been dark and white in the engraved picture.
I have tried on alder and set the feedrate really high , the Darker parts on the engraving looks good , but i am using a picture that have some contrast so i think it would
Bee moore grey and Darker in the pictures .
I have both tried pic laser lite and the demo picengrave 5,

There are many variables that have to be taken into account for successful results. Laser focusing and focal distance. Pixel Resolution (step over) based on your focal point size. Feedrate and Feed Rate Change percentage (PEP5), Min/Max power levels, how the image is edited and the material being engraved. There is a trial & error period, but as time goes on through your testing you will learn how all these effect the outcome. PEP5 does have the ability to save unlimited different settings for each engraving profile. The image editing is hardest to teach because successful results from this editing is in the eye of the beholder.

Thanks.
