Since the beam shape of a diode laser is rectangular, is there a prefered orrientation for the engraving direction? For example, with the long axis or perpendicular to it?
Thanks
Tim

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.
