I’m trying to run tests to figure out settings for all the materials I have. Seems like it should be really obvious, but I’m sure exactly if I’m doing it right.
For example, I have some super thin wood. I randomly started at 300 zooms… because it was the middle. Then, I did 10 to 100 pews, in increments of 10, cutting little squares. 60 didn’t cut all the way through, 70 did, so I tried 65 and it worked.
So, am I done? I assume I could also cut through going faster with less power or slower with more power. I expect I could find at least a handful of combinations that work. Is there a benefit to going slower or cutting with more power? Like, do higher power cuts use up the tube-y magic faster, so I should be trying to find the lowest power cut possible? Or do slower cuts just take longer, and I should be look for the fastest setting that works?
How do other people zero in on their settings when they don’t have a starting point? I feel like I’m missing something.
