This isn’t a problem; I just want to get smarter on the process of cutting.
I tested a cut on a bamboo cutting board, 0.285" thick. Here are the three tries, and the settings involved:
(1) Full power, 500 speed, 3 passes. Laser dug into the material, but not very deep.
(2) Full power, 100 speed, 3 passes. Laser cut completely through, but charred the heck out of the edges.
(3) Full power, 250 speed, 3 passes. Laser cut partially through. I did this twice more, for a total of 9 passes. I had a perfectly clean cut, no charring.
Obviously my best outcome was (3), but I’m hoping to get help doing this more smartly. Should I mess with the power and speed settings, or is this the best I can do?
