Laser not cutting corners

Machine: K40

Board: C3Dmini

Firmware: “I have a new board and I’m using whatever it came with” (think smoothie)

Problem/ Question: the laser cuts fine, but not the corners. Just ignores them. If I turn up the power it gets closer and closer to the corner, but not the corner itself.

What do you have the min power set to? It uses this power level when slowing down for corners. Try raising the minimum power in the cut settings window.

Have done. If I raise to 100% then it works fine. Is there a way to increase power on the corners? Otherwise I end up with light corners and heavy straights.

How old is your machine and tube?

This looks like your laser doesn’t fire at a certain low power level.

Can we see pictures of how you have wired up the board to the laser? I would like to check that all appears good there.
