Try selecting Insert G61/G64.

This is not the place for product support. Use the Contact & Links page on our web site.

Thanks.

Did you try to download and install it? I think it will allow you to play with it without a licence, but will put watermarks on your image.

There are watermarks.
But when I try to press the launch, a window for entering the key pops up.
I can not try.
I can only buy and use immediately.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

After loading an image, select the Tutorial PDF button for instructions.

Dan,

The Encoder information is in the PicEngrave Pro 5 Help PDF.

Try compensating the size by pixels instead of inches. As you know, PEP calculates the engraving size based on the Pixel Resolution setting (step over), so calculate the pixel width & height based on that. Example: if you want it 1" X 1" and the Pixel Resolution setting is .01", the Pixel size should be 100W X 100H.  Also, since your image is real small, don't rely on the dithering outcome how it views on a large monitor.

I use Corel Photo Paint and it lets me increase the DPI without effecting the size. Good case of you get what you pay for;D

Try increasing the DPI resolution in another image editor before opening it in the PEP editor to dither. Also experiment with the Atkinson dithering algorithm as it's adjustable.

Does the 3rd Axis letter change to a F when selected?

The laser variable feedrate replaces the Z with a F. The Feed Rate Change adds the Z depths and the F for variable feedrate at the end on each line of gcode.

If the Feed Rate Change feature was available, there would be an input for the feedrate percentage and a selection to add it or not. I don't see that in the screenshot.

No one has told us they used one of those tools with our software, but it makes sense considering the way the gcode is generated. If it does not retract the tool in common black areas, it would put too much side load on the tool if not constantly impacting with enough stroke to raise off the material slightly on each impact.

When using a dithered image and Feed Rate Change, the tool would retract and run at a higher feedrate in white areas. But looking at your settings screenshot, that version of PicEngrave does not have FRC.

We do offer a program called PicFRC that adds the Feed Rate Change to PicLaser gcode and it may work with that version of PicEngrave gcode also, but you would need to test that with the Demo.

Ok, after some thought, did you save the image after editing and resizing, reopen to dither afterwards, then save again?

I'm not sure why there are variable depths when using a 1bit Dithered image. I don't even have that old of a PicEngrave version on my PC to even test with. :-)
