Testing-Testing!

Postby Picengravertoo » Wed Feb 17, 2016 3:58 pm

We have been doing some extensive testing with a pre-released version of PicSender. This was engraved on Birch Ply with our 6W 450nm laser diode on our Shapeoko 2. A variable feedrate was set between 200 IPM (white) and 150 IPM (black) using our Feed Rate Change feature in PicEngrave Pro 5.

The laser's power range was set at a Min S15 and Max S255 and there were 1,507,509 total X,Y,S & F command lines in the gcode file. It was streamed to the J-Tech PWM 9g grbl firmware.

Just finished this engraving with our 6W LD on Birch Ply. The feedrate was set at 180IPM with a 25% FRC. The size is 11" X 8.1" and it took a total time of 2:00:44 to stream the 1,826,605 lines of X,Y,S & F gcode commands to laser engrave the image. The J-Tech PWM grbl 9g firmware was used.

Quit!!! STOP!!!! There is no way to compete. That's beautiful. All your doing is causing yourself problems and soon you'll be spending a lot of your precious time trying to teach others how to do that. Bet you didn't think of that did ya.
:mrgreen:
Jeff does that 6W laser have and different distance of in focus area? My 2W has about 1/4 in. height it is useable in and it is real handy for some 3D stuff. :?)

I have made up my feeble little brain, I am going to make another build and I am sure you will have to come to Montana to help me get it going. Also I had to tell my bookkeeper I would sell the old one and I do every thing my bookkeeper tells me to do.

:couchD ;-D ;-D ;-D

Jerry, the 6W has a larger divergence (focal point) so it's distance needs to be maintained on your material very consistently. You need to get your Z axis to follow the contours on your relief carvings more efficiently/smoothly. That is why we developed PicLaser 3D to combine the spindle & laser gcodes files.
