This tool is for manual engraving. It is going to oscillate at 50 Hz continuously... Not sure I understand how the process works. Or should it not be energized?

I have looked through the software, but can't see the option for this... ?

Thanks,
Dan

Hi,

Does anybody know if PicEngrave can be used for impact engraving? If so, any reference on how to do this?

Any other alternatives aside from the Impact Engraving plugin? I know Dot-G does it, but seems a bit low on resolution.

OK. So it's not just me. Thanks for your input. I would like to know what the manufacturer has to say, but seems they're not around here.

Hi,

Using pokeys 4.1.64, Mach3 xx.066. Having a strange behaviour. Mostly happens after homing not limited to it. Home the axis, then jog the axis off the switch using the keyboard, release the arrow key and the axis bumps and stops as if there was no deceleration. On subsequent jog moves it would act normally, i.e. decelerating according to the defined rate to a stop. Occasionally it would happen again, but as I said, mostly (not always happens here too) after homing was issued.

Seems like a bug to me.

Thanks for explaining it, Jeff.

Jeff,

So the Z axis commands do actually move the Z? I got the opposite impression from your previous post where you said they were controlling the power of the laser.

Still don't get it - why you can't control just the feedrate and have the same effect. Is there not enough resolution/range for the feedrate?!

Thanks for the photo, I really like the results you're getting.

Hi John,

So you control both the feedrate and the Z depth... but why do you need them both? And how do you correlate/sync them? Isn't it easier having just one parameter to control?

Are you using your PicEngrave software for the Gcode?

Dan

Wow! That' impressive. The depth looks substantial. Could you post a snippet of the Gcode you used to do this? I am curious how it's done.

Hard to judge on the quality from the photos, but looks as though it beats any attempt to 3D engrave with a conventional bit in terms of speed and detail level...

Interesting to follow your investigation in this field.

COOOL!!!!

Interesting, how good of a surface finish can achieved using this method? Also if other materials (acrylic for instance) can be machined equally well or even, may be, some are better?
