I’ve used several lasercutters before and never had issues with raster quality like the GF. Can someone help?
I am trying to get a smooth, good quality engraving on cast acrylic (as well as other plastics). Some designs are super small (0.5") so the details need to be spot on. All designs are vector files (made in .ai and saved as .svg), so it is not a resolution issue to my knowledge.
I played around with lpi, power, and speed but can’t seem to get my usual print quality (from Epilog, Universal machines.) I forget the exact numbers I used for each print, but my final attempt was 1000 speed 20 power 225 lpi. It only worked for one print really well, then the rest were jittery.
Goal: smooth texture, details are captured, smooth borders/edges/lines.
Current: weird sandy texture, small details lost, jittery/serrated edges on designs.
I mostly solved this problem for some extruded acrylic I used by increasing lpi. But it seems to not work for cast acrylic.
