Tweakie. I have another question:
obtained as shades of gray?
plug-in changes the frequency of the output pulses? or shades can not be obtained from this plugin?
Thank you so much!

Hi Josaami,

Yes, you are quite correct, my mistake - in my earlier post I should have said the maximum frequency (set by feed rate).

Hi Tweakie,
I did not mean the maximum frequency.
I wonder whether you can engrave shades of gray. and how mach will be indicated on the shade? ie it changes the frequency of the output signal (from the minimum frequency of feed rate to the maximum frequency of feed rate), or even like that?
Thank you for your answers! They are very helpful!

Hi Josammi,

I think I understand but please excuse me if I have misunderstood your question.

It is the ‘density of pulses’ (pulse repetition frequency) calculated from many factors including;  pixel value, axis speed, axis steps per pixel and the Mach3 kernel speed which produces the shades of grey in the final image.

Hi Josaami,

Once you start using the plugin and closely observing the results I think it will all become a lot clearer.

Hi Josaami,

I hope it all goes well.

I would really like to see some pictures of your results, if you get time.

Hi Tweakie!
engraving was good!
shades of gray have not yet done. bitmap picture turned out.
photos very bad quality.
