Hi Glowforge! Just wondering how many power levels there will be for the laser and if this will be different between the 40W and 45W models.
If I understand correctly, this directly affects the detail we can get with “3D engraving” in a single pass. I know higher end laser engravers (like Kern uses) have 256 power levels to match standard 8-bit greyscale bitmaps and the resulting engravings look amazing. Curious how the Glowforge compares.
I know that multiple passes can be done for a similar effect but this would take longer and be of lower quality, would it not? Sorry for the long-winded question, really can’t wait to get my Pro model!
