Engraving pencils with the Aura

Hi everyone!

I recently purchased the Aura. What settings should I use when trying to engrave on wooden pencils? I see the settings for the standard glowforge is:
Speed: 340
Power: 15
Lines per inch (LPI): 340

It will probably take a bit of experimenting. Be prepared to sacrifice a pencil or two to get the settings right. If it were me I’d start with the Proofgrade settings for any of the hardwoods listed and adjust from there.

Thank you! I will definitely see which settings work best.

Also remember that if you don’t move the pencil, you can make a second or third try so you don’t waste material.
