@Andrew: Have you been able to burn an image like a photograph? Something with shades of gray ? The video was cool, that laser has some power for sure. It looks like it’s a little out of focus but hard to tell because the power levels are so high. If you can’t reduce the power then you have you have to speed up the feedrate significantly. Have you tried writing a couple of lines of simple gcode to create a series of lines at VERY low power and at gradually increasing feedrates to figure out what you’re ideal focus and federate should be? BTW: Invest in a FIRE EXTINGUISHER:)
