I have another burn going now using masking tape – we’ll see how it comes out. Note when putting on the tape – you should butt the edges together, and not have any overlap at all. I know that probably sounds obvious, but I thought that 1/16 of an inch overlap wouldn’t hurt, but it kinda looks like it did – I’ll know for sure when the burn’s finished.

For this burn I mounted my mobius camera on the z tower, so it moves with the laser. It’ll be interesting to see what that looks like.

Curt, can you control the speed from the LCD while it’s burning? I know if I turn the knob when it’s not running a program, the feedrate will change, but it wouldn’t do it while it was burning. It would be helpful to be able to tweak it without having to stop.
