Hi @MarcM ,
Thanks so much for your response. @Jules has been tremendous help and I do appreciate it!
I am still having trouble, though. While increasing the speed did help with the darkness, I am having “skipping” on some of my engraving. I’ll attach a couple of pictures to show you what I mean. I have no idea if it’s related or a completely different issue.
The first heart was done on my Basic with FP/300. The next 4 were done on the Pro with FP and speed ranging from ~600 to ~800. Same LPI for all 5.
If you look at the loop on the “k”, it’s clearly visible on the Basic engrave. No matter what speed I’ve tried on the Pro, it doesn’t print clearly.
This is the same file used for all, so it’s not design issue. Also, all other settings on the 2 machines were the same - I only adjusted speed.
Here’s another one. I don’t have a comparison to show (though I can make one on the Basic, if it helps). You can see in the 9, there is a similar “skip”. Again, I tried multiple speeds.
Any ideas? Is there another setting I should be testing? I’ve used these settings on my Basic for over a year now. While I understand the speed needed to be adjusted, I would have thought I’d hit the “sweet spot” on the Pro with all the testing I’ve done.
The good news is - most of my engraves are fine. So, it doesn’t happen every time.
Thanks for any further guidance. Much appreciated!
