Curious about the wavelength's transmissivity


#1

I know infrared astronomy has allowed us to see ‘through’ the obscuring ‘dust’ that blocks our view in the visible wavelengths, But during an engrave at full power when there is a great deal of smoke passing across the beam to the head, I wonder if the beam is at all reduced by the smoke?

Thanks!

it’s probably measurable with the correct equipment but i mean in comparison to what’s hitting the medium i can’t imagine it amounts to much.

There’s definitely some optical attenuation through the smoke (not a lot), but air assist helps a ton with that!

Thank you Aeva :sunglasses:
