So I’m trying to determine the “intricacy” limits using varying materials - I have some projects that are going to focus on extremely fine details.
Here’s a close-up of a sample I’m working on. Here’s where I’m confused - top sample was cut at 400/full (pro), bottom at 500/full.
At the slower speed, some intricate details burned up the material, but at the higher speed, those sections were fine, but a different section was vaporized.
I have a theory - that the amount of time it takes for the beam to re-visit an area, or time the material has to lose some of the heat from the previous pass, is causing different “burn” results. So I’m posting here for thoughts/opinions.
For reference, the magnets are around the size of a quarter ($0.25), and the fine details I’m losing are (supposed to be) <0.5mm.
