With a 500 mW laser you are definitely going to want to do close to MAX power, as well as slowing the feed rate down. The different profiles can be tuned to your laser, they were just set at points that I found worked with the 2.8W 445nm laser.

The feedrate override checkbox just allows the profile to update the feedrate box on the GCODE page – nothing else. I made it optional in case you didn’t (or did) want the feedrate to keep getting changed when you switched profiles.
