I think I found the answer, looks like it's as simple as, the optimal wavelength is the wavelength that is absorbed by the material.

Never really thought of it that way but it certainly sounds like a very good rule of thumb.

Well, I never did get any response from Tomura Kazuki with his TomTom plugin, so I guess it's out of the question. I do wonder however whether the Mach3 plugin or DotG are smart enough to not stupidly scan the entire area line by line thereby going over large areas where engraving isn't necessary?
