Laser Test and question

Post by slackmaniac on Thu Mar 31, 2016 2:14 am

So I got my laser back up and working and ran this test of a laser rose:

However I was only able to figure out how to outline the rose on CTC Inkscape via the digital manual. I was wondering if anyone figured out an option to fill an engraving rather than outline it. Hope to hear a reply soon. Smile

I'm working on this issue too. According to the Formaker manual CURA should be used. There you can load a pixel graphic (no vector unfortunately) an get an embossed 3D model. But I was unable to get the laser to engrave that.

Has anybody been able to generate gcode/x3g file for later engraving something other than outline graphics?

Either with CURA or any other tool. Any advise would be much appreciated. 

Thanks,
Gregster

Does any1 know the switch on the laser board do is under the formaker .is it for voltage or something else because the power supply is 24v and the laser board used only 12v some people have problem with laser board burning due to 24 v power coming in laser board
