LED edge light engraving settings

Hey guys!

I’ve been making some LED lamps, but I don’t always like how mine look. It seems like a lot of them block out too much light for the lamp to look as good as I would like it to.

Does anyone have any tips on settings they use for the engraving on the acrylic? Currently, I’m doing focus height 5.5, 265 lines per cm and at a slower speed of 790.

Thanks!
