Are you referring to line after line of simple G1 Y moves with nothing in between? I am aware of that, and I haven’t had the time lately to fix it.

Filesize increases exponentially with increasing resolution. So it’s to be expected.

-It has already been determined by Leo69 and others that the M106 command has to be on its own line.

“The current way of generating the G1 moves blows the files up too much.
As long as there is no change in power all G1 commands before the last can be deleted to create a single line instead of dots.
Currently I have to set the resolution to 0.2 and the image DPI to 100 to be able to engrave a 23x17cm image, would be great to try that again in a much finer resolution ?”
— Can you provide an example of the moves that aren’t needed?
