PicEngrave Pro 5 allows you to orient your image when generating the gcode for your work space and travel limits. The file has 1,802,756 lines of gcode and PicSender streamed it flawlessly.

Jeff, for some unknown reason my pc will not run the video. I am getting a message that the plugin is disabled. My problem is that I can not figure out what plugin is disabled. What plugin does the video use? Have same problem on some other sites. Some video plays, but ones using this plugin does not. Any help.

Doug

Hi Doug,

Firefox & Internet Explorer requires the Adobe Flash Player plugin to be installed or enabled: Select the operating system and browser your using.

Google Chrome has Adobe Flash Player built in and installs automatically, because they own YouTube.

The more I look at your work the more I want to be able to make something at least near to this. I love this kind of arts.
Soon I,ll have all the new electronics but the laser, this will have to wait till the end of May, mostly cause in April here in Andalucia there were a party everyweek starting with Eastern and finishing with the ^Romeria de la Virgen de la Cabeza^.
Saludos and glad to see you all keep improving,
Jose

Thanks Jose,

We are constantly testing and making improvements. We have 4 laser diode engravers here and it keeps us very busy.

I have PEP5 and J-Tech's 2.8W laser. Don't have the Shakeoko though. I have grbl 0.9i and a shield used for X-Y. Using grbl PWM in PEP to gen the gcode and J-Tech's laser driver. My biggest problem is that I cannot get anywhere near the speed shown in you videos. What is the biggest contributing factor to speeding up the X-Y motion? Controller, PWM vs Analog, steppers? I'm new and not sure where to start.

The grbl settings are a big factor and the streamer that sends the gcode to grbl is also. Our PicSender streamer is optimized for running the fast changing, very large raster gcode files. Here is our Shapeoko 2 grbl settings for laser engraving.

$0=30 (step pulse, usec)
$1=255 (step idle delay, msec)
$2=0 (step port invert mask:00000000)
$3=18 (dir port invert mask:00010010)
$4=0 (step enable invert, bool)
$5=0 (limit pins invert, bool)
$6=0 (probe pin invert, bool)
$10=18 (status report mask:00010010)
$11=0.005 (junction deviation, mm)
$12=0.002 (arc tolerance, mm)
$13=1 (report inches, bool)
$20=0 (soft limits, bool)
$21=0 (hard limits, bool)
$22=0 (homing cycle, bool)
$23=0 (homing dir invert mask:00000000)
$24=0.000 (homing feed, mm/min)
$25=0.000 (homing seek, mm/min)
$26=250 (homing debounce, msec)
$27=1.000 (homing pull-off, mm)
$100=52.493 (x, step/mm)
$101=52.493 (y, step/mm)
$102=160.000 (z, step/mm)
$110=4500.000 (x max rate, mm/min)
$111=4500.000 (y max rate, mm/min)
$112=2450.000 (z max rate, mm/min)
$120=12000.000 (x accel, mm/sec^2)
$121=12000.000 (y accel, mm/sec^2)
$122=150.000 (z accel, mm/sec^2)
$130=290.000 (x max travel, mm)
$131=290.000 (y max travel, mm)
$132=200.000 (z max travel, mm)

Also grbl 9i dwells when using S Spindle commands on every line of gcode. You can download the J-Tech PWM 9g grbl hex from the main page on this forum. It runs the S commands it real time.

We use Analog/PWM in PEP5 for gen PWM code. It has more features then GRBL PWM does.
