So we have been. having a great time with our new 100w Baracudda Laser from Light Object. Like any laser, there are fun times to be had with focus, and so on.
We have a slight wobble at high speeds and tight art we are fighting along with just learning what is the best default configuration for a wide community of users.
Below are a few picks today that show the difference between what I am getting with different lenses. I am cutting on 1/8 inch cabinet grade Russian birch plywood.
The one on the left was cut with a 2″ lens with these settings
- Cut: 30/55/50
- Partial Cut 55/12/12
- Etch: 400/30/.1
The one on the right was cut with a 2.5″ lens with these settings
- Cut: 30/35/30
- Partial Cut 200/12/12
- Etch: 600/30/.1
As you can see for the partial cut and sharp detail the 2″ lens was a way better bet.
