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?

It's fantastic, Art! But how is it that the wood maintains its natural colour and doesn't look burned?

Thanks. Restarting Mach helped solve this. However, still have a problem of the axes not stopping exactly at the defined soft limit, but rather overshooting by an amount depending on the feed rate.

Hi,

Should softlimits work with this setup? I am not able to turn softlimits on in Mach3. Getting the message that I am beyond limits, although I am within the defined envelope.

Thanks,
Dan

I've been asked in private, so I'll try to clear things up: the unit was bought NEW from CS Labs 3 years ago and has NEVER been used. Only thing I did right after receiving it was connecting it to the PC and playing with the plugin. The modules are still in their original packaging. Will let them go for $600 plus shipping costs.
