How can I fire zero dimensional points at a surface?
To be clear, here’s what I want.
I want the head to move to 100,100
I want the laser to fire for a defined time and strength.
I want the laser to stop, and then move to the next point.
Neither vector nor engrave mode appear to have this capability at the moment. I can make a very nice small circle, but it has the problem that the center of the circle has a kerf that overlaps itself, and burns all the way through the material.
How should I do this? I’m not even sure it’s expressible directly in SVG. Perhaps a poly line with a start and end at the same location? How would I control duration?
Duration here is equivalent to speed in other modes.
Why do I want this?
For halftoning; perforating; and small typeface features, used in combination with defocus to deliver width.
