I have been working on a coaster design which utilizes gradients, i have converted the gradient portions to a raster so that it can be consumed by the GUI.
I ran a test print using the proofgrade settings and from the looks of it the standard PG settings operate at too narrow a variance. resulting a a very sharp contrast rather then more gradual darkening.
My solution was to change over to manual mode and widen the pattern density spectrum. the problem is I do not know what power or LPI value the proofgrade setting utilize.
When you first switch to Manual mode from one of the Proofgrade presets, the default LPI for that material is listed at the bottom. You can change it up or down there if you want it more dense or lighter.
That is what I initially assumed, but, because I was noticing that “light engrave” and “dark engrave” both had the same power setting I started to question if the setting when going to manual mode were based on the material or just default settings regardless of material
Sorry, those links don’t work for me, so I can’t tell what you’re seeing.
That being said, I should have added the standard disclaimer – the values reported were as seen on my GF Basic, last updated on October 16th. Your unit may have different settings for a variety of reasons.
