Machine: 80w CO2 laser
Firmware: I have a new board and I’m using whatever it came with
Prequel: I’ve been running lots of jobs (successfully) for the last couple of months using Lightburn since I got the Laserboard. This question is an exercise in tunning the machine as per documentation.
Problem/ Question: I’m going through PWM Tunning for Smoothieware; but, I think I’m missing an important step. I can’t attach pictures yet; so, I’m providing external temp links:
As documented in PWM tunning page I found that setting
laser_module_pwm_period 3200 results in recommended current usage for a range of values: “…S0.4 is 40% and I would expect to see the needle somewhere around 4mA…”
However, as seen in the photo, the 3200 value reduces the quality of the output in comparison to the default 200 value. It seems that the DPI or interval is negatively being affected.
Is there another setting that I should be working with as well?
