…Hey Leo,

I didn’t know if you could help me try to figure something out. I haven’t fired up the 2.8w laser in a while that I put together based on your guide. Anyways.. I’ve been messing with Image2Gcode again and for some reason my laser etchings are smearing when I do a 8 bit image. Please look at my attachment so see what I’m talking about. It’s almost as if the laser is not turning off fast enough and adds extra lines when it’s passing diagonally. Any ideas? It doesn’t happen when I use Inkscape etches but as you know Inkscape doesn’t travel across the x/y axis like Image2Gcode does. I’m trying to rule out if this is a laser/driver issue or software issue. My MPCNC prints 3d prints perfect btw……………
