Is that using the JTech laser controller? Question in the quest to do things faster, is it possible to take outline text as in a DXF file export and hatch? In other words add a light even shading to be engraved instead of the dark, dark text I am getting.
On my Ray Fine 20 Watt Galvo fiber laser the very difficult to use EZCad :( software has that function, of hatching text. However it can not be exported. PS is that our first Lady??

That was done with our 3W EmBlaser (EB). Our image to gcode programs are for raster engraving only, but they will generate gcode to engrave text from an image and they have the ability to set the laser's power so it will burn as light/dark as you wish.

So if I have a gray scale image, it will do as above? If I want the Text lighter color I just make grey text it will be brown or lighter and not the burnt black I am now getting. I have the JTech controller, but not hooked up right now and a 5 watt laser diode I can power at lower power 4 watts or so, with the JTech if its faster than the Russian one I am using now with the full 5 watts.
The big issue I can see with time, is the resizing of the image or text from the OEM import. I do all in mm and I need a certain size, that is what I make it in Corel Draw and export as BMP. So now when I take it into the "other" program its the wrong size. So I need to play with the diode dot size to get it close to what I need. So with the dot size at say .35 of a mm, that means the laser diode is going to go over and over the same area to match that setting. So the engraved text gets burnt over and over again. If grey text will allow me to not Burn the darn text I would really be happy. It will also save a lot of time.
Ideally if I could hatch the text, that would be the "other" solution.

I have the Demo of Pic Laser I will try in the morning.

If your worried about engraving time, I recommend you download our PicEngrave Pro 5 and test it instead.
