First project with pic laser.

Postby Rhodney » Fri Sep 16, 2016 6:08 pm

Hello all, first of all great product. I'm new to the laser world as it is impossible to carve in my apartment, router noise and such. Formalities out the way, here is my first project/test. BTW it has been less than a day since I bought Pic Laser. Thoughts or improvements are welcome. And how do I stop Pic Laser from doing the border?

I have a 500mW BG laser attached to my SO3.

Hi Rhodney,

Very good results for the first try. To keep the border from engraving, un-select the Engrave Outline.

With an image like that, by adding a Feed Rate Change with PicFRC, it will travel faster in white areas and slow to burn in the darker areas to cut down on the engraving time.

I'm looking to upgrade my laser. Anyone got a used 1w or 2w that you might be willing to part with?
